"We're honored to partner with MLS within the EA Sports FIFA 18 Global Series as we continue to help grow competitive gaming and soccer in North America", Todd Sitrin, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Competitive Gaming Division at EA, said in a press release.

Known as eMLS, the league will resemble esports organizations like the National Basketball Association 2K League in that its competitors will represent real-life sports teams.

To start, 19 MLS teams - including the Union - will participate and each club will select its own player from its region.

The FIFA esports circuit is also beginning to expand, with tournament organizers like Gfinity doubling down on the game as a competitive title.

They have stuck to their natural game, punishing bad deliveries and not flirting much with the wide balls outside off. Veteran Steyn injured his left heel midway through the match and has been sidelined for four to six weeks.

Further details on the eMLS league structure and team player signings will be revealed in the coming weeks. Though that being said there is still much about the eMLS that remains unclear.

There are 19 MLS teams hosting an eMLS club. There's also no word of if these eMLS pros will receive full-time salaries and benefits, like players in the National Basketball Association 2K League or the new Overwatch League do. Whoever wins among those 19 will be guaranteed a spot in the Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 Global Series playoffs and can compete for a chance to move on to the Federation Internationale de Football Association eWorld Cup. The league, named eMLS, will be tied to the upcoming EA Sports FIFA 18 Global Series Playoffs.

The official dates for the eMLS Cup will be announced soon by EA Sports and MLS. It seems hard to believe that a professional sports league would spin up an esports organization just for one year, not as a long-term pursuit, and a spokesperson told Polygon that MLS is working to establish eMLS in a way that can support future iterations of EA's games.

On January 12th the MLS and EA Sports announced that they were partnering up in order to create the eMLS, a new competitive Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 league which will include the best Federation Internationale de Football Association players in North America.
