Major League Soccer Launches FIFA 18 Esports League

Major League Soccer Launches FIFA 18 Esports League

Major League Soccer has officially announced as of January 12 that it will be partnering with EA Sports to create its own esports league.

MLS will engage fans of participating MLS teams to follow along as players are recruited and compete for the eMLS Cup in April at gaming festival PAX East in Boston. The MLS isn't the first football league to do this either, with the Eredivisie's E-divisie in full flow, the French Orange eLigue 1, the Virtual Bundesliga and the competition in Russian Federation in which all top flight teams boast a FIFA pro. That event will determine the US and Canada qualifiers to the EA Sports FIFA 18 Global Series Playoffs for a berth to August's FIFA eWorld Cup, which was recently announced. The three Canadians teams have yet to make an announcement about their pro gamers.

The MLS is following in the footsteps of the National Basketball Association and NFL, who each have created their own esports leagues in their respective gaming titles.

EA Sports has announced the eMLS Cup, an e-sports tournament after a deal with the Major League Soccer (MLS) that will see 19 teams compete in Federation Internationale de Football Association 18.

Each of the teams involved will draft gamers who survive the qualification process to compete as unique characters in 5-on-5 play against the other teams in a mix of regular-season games, tournaments and playoffs. The Philadelphia Flyers have already partnered with WorldGaming for the Snider Hockey Cup, a North American championship whose finals are in March. Though that being said there is still much about the eMLS that remains unclear.

Already a Red Bull athlete, LaBelle is one of the premier content creators in eSports with over 70,000 followers on Twitch and 285,000 on YouTube, and is a top-ranked player worldwide on both Xbox and Playstation.

Holly is already on his way, having qualified for the FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) Champions Cup on January 26-28 in Barcelona, Spain, where the top eight finishers will advance to the June playoffs.
