Latest news

    MLS clubs will only be able to send one gamer to represent them in eMLS events and, as Polygon reports, it’s not yet clear if they will receive the same benefits and salaries that NBA 2K League or Overwatch League players do. The future of eMLS is also not set in stone just yet as eMLS is currently only set up for FIFA 18.
