REGISTRATION OPENS 1/1/22
In the aftermath of the cancellation of DreamHack Anaheim, a new TF2 LAN event is born in its stead. Starting with this event, we are aiming to break the cycle of frustrating LAN cancellations from the past few years, and offer a great LAN experience that the TF2 community deserves. Localhost is committed to supporting grassroots esports communities of all shapes and sizes, so hopefully this can serve as the beginning of a new era of TF2 events all across the country.
February 12-13, 2022 (Saturday and Sunday)
11am-10pm PST Daily (10:30am Check-in)
The venue will be open in the days before and after the event, feel free to stop by and rent some time on the computers for even more LAN experience.

(Note: The building is brand new, and attached to a Five Below that replaced a closed Chuck E Cheese, so don’t be surprised if searches of the address wield outdated results)
