  • Major League Soccer Enters Esports With a New FIFA Competition

MLS setting up a competitive gaming league follows the lead of a number of soccer leagues that have already done the same.

PAX East April 5-8 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.

On Friday MLS launched eMLS, a new competitive league for EA Sports FIFA 18 including 19 MLS teams, with each selecting a FIFA player to represent them in competition.

The 19 participating clubs (out of 23) are the Chicago Fire, Colorado Rapids, Columbus Crew SC, FC Dallas, Houston Dynamo, LA Galaxy, Minnesota United FC, Montreal Impact, New England Revolution, New York City FC, New York Red Bulls, Orlando City SC, Philadelphia Union, Portland Timbers, San Jose Earthquakes, Seattle Sounders FC, Sporting Kansas City, Toronto FC, and Vancouver Whitecaps FC.

There's a new eSports organization in town. The first eMLS Cup will take place this April at PAX East in Boston, with the victor earning an automatic berth in the EA Sports FIFA 18 Global Series Playoff and a chance to become the FIFA 18 World Champion at the FIFA eWorld Cup 18 in August.
