There’s no underestimated the power of eSports, particularly FIFA, who has become one of the most popular games on the market regardless of whether or not you’re a soccer fan.
This past weekend marked the first-ever eMLS Cup, which featured 19 representatives from MLS clubs, and one victor emerged on Sunday.
Guillermo ‘Memo’ Treviño (aka Kid M3Mito) helped the Houston Dynamo take home the inaugural trophy, with a 6-4 win on aggregate in the two-legged final against the Montreal Impact.
Treviño, along with Impact eMLS player Lyes Ould-Ramoul, will each take part in the EA Sports FIFA 18 Global Series Playoffs this summer, which concludes with the eMLS World Cup in August.
NYCFC representative Christopher Holly — who became the first eMLS player in 2017 when he signed with the Eastern Conference side — will also take part in the Global Series Playoffs.Follow @MattReedFutbol
