Major League Gaming was originally a longstanding console tournament with a tour around North America. Since being created, the organization has shifted to PC games, letting them thrive with viewership and a strong following. While having LAN events is a major part of what they do, they also host online tournaments through GameBattles. They have now added Counter-Strike: Global Offensive to their games list.
MLG has announced a $9,000 Steelseries 5v5 Ladder Tournament and a $1,000 Steelseries 1v1 Ladder tournament. If you wish to sign up, you can visit their website here.
