Arcadia is the world's first sports platform that combines Esports with real athletics. Instead of avatars, athletes use their bodies as controllers inside competitive video games in front of live interactive audiences. Arcadia is creating a new category in sports unlike anything athletes or audiences have experienced before: SuperSports.
