The New Jersey Economic Development Authority is working with partners throughout the industry to "make sure New Jersey is a destination for esports companies," according to a release from the authority.
The NJEDA is also helping facilitate the creation of Conference One (CF1), a college-specific league that will be headquartered in New Jersey
Anthony Gaud, CEO of G3 Esports, which established and manages Conference One. "We needed a place with a robust technology infrastructure that could handle the demands of major livestreamed events, a highly skilled and adaptable workforce, and an established sports wagering industry. Not many locations offer all of that, but New Jersey has it all. We look forward to collaborating with the NJEDA and other partners throughout the state to grow Conference One while supporting New Jersey’s emerging status as the hub of the American esports industry.”
