Earlier this year, TSM released plans for a new "Performance Center," a place where TSM pros would not only practice, but also eat, lounge, exercise, stream, create content, etc. They're even including a sensory deprivation tank by request of their star Mid Laner, Søren "Bjergsen" Bjerg, and will have the first holistic wellness center in esports. Additionally, they'll eventually hold events there for TSM fans to come and meet the pros, hang out on the deck, and see where the action takes place!
While it is not yet open, TSM's League of Legends Championship Series team will be competing from their facility for the LCS games this Summer Split. They've been experiencing difficulty with internet from their apartments and have gotten permission to play official matches from the facility, and will comply with local health regulations regarding COVID-19.
TSM released a statement explaining the situation on their official website.
"Recently, the LCS team has experienced internet connectivity issues while scrimming and playing from home. After consulting with, and receiving approval from Riot Games, and in accordance with local and state health recommendations, our League of Legends team will be competing from the closed TSM Performance Center for the upcoming LCS Summer Split.
During LCS matches, only the five members and one coach of the team will be in the 25,000 square foot building, which is not yet open. In addition to adhering to social distancing guidelines and wearing face coverings, TSM’s facility employs state-of-the-art hygiene and cleanliness protocols to ensure the safety of all individuals.
The exciting new TSM Performance Center is in the final stages of construction and will be unveiled to the world soon."
