“Our goal for the overall development of all of Drayton Mills has always been to create a vibrant community where living, learning, working and playing can all occur here as it historically did in the days of the operating mill,” said Tara Sherbert, Owner and Developer of Drayton Mills and Managing Principal of The Sherbert Group. “We believe esports is a perfect piece to finishing off our vibrant community puzzle,” continues Sherbert. “The community interaction component of the program falls directly in line with our extensive on-site programming and constant focus of bringing communities together. Recreating history beautifully takes community, and we are beyond proud that Converse has trusted our campus with this incredible and cutting-edge program.”
Historic Drayton Mills Marketplace in Spartanburg, S.C. will house Converse University Athletics’ inaugural co-educational esports program. The dynamic space at Drayton Mills Marketplace will help fulfill The Sherbert Group’s mission in developing the historic site.
