Major League Gaming is expanding. The leading eSports organization today announced a partnership with Grupo Águia to launch MLG Brasil, the group's first international initiative. Grupo Águia is a specialized travel group based in Brazil that has "decades" of experience working with global sports and tourism initiatives like this year's World Cup.

MLG cofounder and president Mike Sepso said in a statement that Grupo Águia's "extensive experience" made them the "perfect" partner and teased further expansion plans.

"MLG has long been focused on growing the competitive gaming scene and we quickly recognized the tremendous opportunity to create a strong presence in the largest economic market in Latin America," Sepso said. "This is the first of many international franchises we plan to roll out in the coming years and we are excited to provide South American gamers with the ultimate platform to compete on a global scale."

MLG's expansion into Brazil comes in the company's 11th year of operation and follows partnerships with international leagues to increase its foothold in Europe and Asia. MLG Brasil's first initiative will be the Call of Duty Championship Brazilian Online Qualifiers on February 16 and 23.
