Major League Soccer is creating its own FIFA eSports league

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.

    Gary Stevenson, president of MLS Business Ventures, said in a statement, “This step forward into competitive gaming is a key component in our partnership with EA Sports to promote deeper engagement and connections between MLS supporters and the millions of FIFA players around the world.”
