Action-Packed eSports Weekend Awaits Us at MLG Pro Circuit on July 29-31
Major League Gaming (MLG), the world’s largest competitive video game league, is returning to Southern California from July 29-31 for the Anaheim Pro Circuit video game competition at the Anaheim Convention Center. Competitor and spectator passes for the anticipated event are now on-sale at www.majorleaguegaming.com.
The Anaheim competition is the third stop on the 8th annual MLG Pro Circuit tour where thousands of players will square off in a three-day, double-elimination video game tournament for a chance at more than $120,000 in prizes and stipends. Some of the best in the world will compete playing some of the most popular video games of all time including Blizzard Entertainment’s blockbuster real-time strategy game, StarCraft® II: Wings of Liberty™ on PC, the record-setting Call of Duty®: Black Ops on the PlayStation®3 (PS3™) system, and the popular Halo: Reach on Xbox 360.
Thousands of spectators will view all of the action via three giant main stages with huge video screens and live commentating. Attendees can visit an array of booths featuring meet and greets with the Pros, the latest products from MLG partners, pre-release access to games and more.
MLG also introduced a new feature: you can now subscribe to the annual memberships, which allow you to get discounts for both competitors and spectator passes. These memberships are not for just one weekend, but for every MLG event of the year, with benefits for both the people who will go to the tournaments in-person, and those who can only watch them online. You can find all the info you need at www.majorleaguegaming.com/membership.
For those that can’t make the event in-person, they can watch LIVE via four streams online at www.majorleaguegaming.com. The recent Columbus Pro Circuit delivered a record-breaking 22.5 million online video streams to viewers in 164 countries. More than 15,000 fans attended over the course of the weekend and more than 1,300 players from around the world competed. The online viewers, combined with in-person attendance made Columbus the largest Pro Circuit competition in MLG history.Continued on the next page
