About

Major League Gaming, often abbreviated MLG, founded in 2002 by Sundance DiGiovanni and Mike Sepso, is a North American professional Electronic sports organisation, headquartered in New York City. MLG has held official video game tournaments throughout the United States and Canada, which were sometimes broadcast on television. The company has also been involved in game development, after buying a software developer for online gaming communities [1]. MLG's aim is to elevate computer and console game tournaments to viable competitive and spectator events [2]. Even though it used to focus on FPS (First Person Shooter games) and fighting games, MLG eventually opened its horizons to RTS (Real Time Strategy games) and MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena games) with StarCraft II and League of Legends, respectively in 2010 and 2011. In 2016, MLG was acquired by Activision Blizzard to further plans of creating the ESPN of esports. [3]
