Major League Soccer Launches FIFA 18 Esports League

Major League Soccer Enters Esports With a New FIFA Competition

The first games of the eMLS cup will debut at this year's PAX East in April.

On January 12th the MLS and EA Sports announced that they were partnering up in order to create the eMLS, a new competitive Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 league which will include the best Federation Internationale de Football Association players in North America. 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 USA 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 eMLS league will only feature players from the USA and Canada, and a number of real MLS teams will be hosting their own eMLS clubs.

Kristaps Porzingis tries to stay positive despite "painful" overtime loss to Pelicans
SICK DAY Evan Turner missed the game with an illness, forcing Terry Stotts to use his 11th different starting lineup this season. However, that hold on No. 7 is dependent upon winning today against the Knicks - a loss would drop the Pelicans back to eighth.

The NBA has already started qualifying for gamers hoping to be part of the NBA 2K League when it tips off in May.

The NHL is expected to announce its esports plans soon. Do you think North Americans stand a better chance in the eWorld Cup or the real World Cup?

He's the second eSports signing in MLS, following Christopher Holly, who signed with RBNY's crosstown rivals New York City FC last summer.

A Houston native, LaBelle played college soccer at McMurry University; he has won seven national titles in EA Sports FIFA and represented the United States at the FIFA Interactive World Cup and World Cyber Games, among others.
