This week, we’ll be witnessing what we hope will become a tradition in eSports history. For the first time ever, Major League Gaming and ESPN are teaming up to bring eSports to the X Games in Austin, Texas.
The MLG Call of Duty: Ghosts tournament will feature the top five Call of Duty teams based on MLG Pro Points, in addition to the top three teams from the Call of Duty Championship held last month in Winter Park, Florida.
The eight teams will compete in a double-elimination group format, with four teams advancing to a single-elimination bracket.
ASTRO Pro Teams:
X Games medals will be awarded to the top 3 winning teams. Naturally, we’ll be rooting especially for our ASTRO Family Pros including the recent addition of Team Curse. Welcome to the family Curse MOB!
If you’re anywhere near the area, a three-day ticket to X Games Austin costs $89 and allows holders access to the Major League Gaming tent. You can also opt for a 3-Day Major League Gaming Premium upgrade for reserved seating inside the MLG tent, a gift bag and other perks. Score remaining tickets here.
If you’re not able to pop down to Texas, you can catch all the excitement on ESPN or the MLG Livestream. Be sure follow @MLG on Twitter for live updates and check out the MLG event post for details on X Games live streams, schedules and brackets.
As always, be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram for all things ASTRO. Good luck ASTRO Family! See you in Austin!
