Major League Gaming (MLG) is a North American esports organization that hosts tournaments in a variety of games. From 2004-2012, MLG was the primary Halo eSports league.

History

MLG was founded in 2002 by "Sundance" DiGiovanni and Mike Sespo.[1] Their first tournament was a Halo: CE tournament in New York in 2004. They started out small, with only Halo competitions, but by 2006, their fanbase and revenue had grown exponentially, and they were able to host National Championship events with prize pools in six-digits. As time went on, MLG started holding competitions in a variety of games, including Starcraft, Call of Duty, League of Legends and more. MLG's final full Halo season was in 2011, after which they've hosted only four Halo events. Their flagship game became Call of Duty after their departure from the scene.
