Major League Gaming Expanding To Brazil, Has Plans For More Int'l Expansion
Major League Gaming is expanding outside of North America, establishing a new int'l franchise called MLG Brasil. The new venture will begin with competitions on Feb. 16 and 23, and contain a regular series of events and online distribution of its competitions through MLG.TV like its U.S.-based counterpart. MLG Brasil is being developed in partnership with travel and tourism outfit Grupo Aguia. MLG co-Founder & President Mike Sepso said, “MLG has long been focused on growing the competitive gaming scene and we quickly recognized the tremendous opportunity to create a strong presence in the largest economic market in Latin America. This is the first of many international franchises we plan to roll out in the coming years.” Paulo Castello Branco Filho will be MLG Brasil CEO.
