THE ULTIMATE GAMING LEAGUE (UGL)
seeks to expand the culture of e-sports beyond competitive gaming to create and engage a broader community of gamers through entertainment and education.
Throughout the centuries there have been some epic battles where mere mortals tested their strength, their cunning and their wit to noteworthy adversaries. These battles played out everywhere from the blacktop to the hardwood, from Rome’s ancient Colosseum to the Oakland Coliseum.
Showdowns like the Thriller in Manila to Lakers vs. Celtics in the 1980’s and Brady vs. Manning will forever be ingrained in the public’s consciousness. Those battles have earned their spots in history already. Video games give the average Joe the opportunity to step into the shoes of legends and become legends themselves.
Now those that think they have skills and understand that life is not complete unless you compete will have a chance to test their mettle with the Ultimate Gaming League. We are looking for strong men and women who are not afraid to go head-to-head on the sticks.
These tournaments are not for faint of heart. It’s not for sucka ducks. We are looking for folks who are dedicated to dominating their opponent. Is that you? Are you willing to step up? Are you destined to be immortal? Then the Ultimate Gaming League awaits you!
