  • About the event

    Welcome to the premiere of Chicago Melee's NEWEST Arcadian Series!

    The Chicago Melee Arcadian has a new home in the center of beautiful Lincoln Park, hosted out of DePaul University's Student Center! This is an event meant for players that are new to Super Smash Bros. Melee or players whose bracket usually ends early. There are NO"Ranked Players" allowed to enter!

    Why should you sponsor?

    To give some more reasoning as to why your sponsorship could be beneficial for you, here are some stats for Twitch viewership as well as in-person attendance at past Chicago Melee events.


    On the ChicagoMelee Twitch Page:

    • 600 Average Live Views during locals

    • 30 Average Viewers during locals

    At Hold that L #7,(A large regional tournament hosted on June 4th)-

    • 261 Average Viewers

    • 5,864 Live Views

    • 2,167 Unique Viewers

    • 219 In-Person Attendants, a record high for Chicago Melee events

        DePaul Esports, our partner - 

    • Average 55 attendants at the Smashfest local series

    • Average 125 attendants at Slam Dunk, the elevated monthly series

    Links to the Chicago Melee website + Twitter:




    In addition to raw data, the Chicago Melee scene has seen a large increase in new players compared to pre-covid tournaments. Approximately 20% of the attendants at Hold that L #7 were “new players”(start.gg accounts created after 2020). This new group of players could be a huge market to reach with a sponsorship. 


    If you’re interested in sponsoring our event and becoming the face of the new player experience in the Chicagoland Melee scene, please let me know and we can further discuss details.
