"Wow #MLGAnaheim pass sales are insane. HUGE spike in the last 20 minutes. Biggest @mlg event ever," Apicella wrote on Twitter today.
Apicella also revealed that the venue has exhausted its chair supply for the event, a milestone he described as "unprecedented."
MLG CEO Sundance DiGiovanni also revealed record-breaking statistics for the event, saying ad sales for MLG Anaheim are also on track to "shatter previous records" and that the event has enjoyed the "highest gate sales for an MLG event to date."
MLG Anaheim kicks off tonight with competitors for StarCraft II, League of Legends, and Call of Duty: Black Ops II. GameSpot will be on-hand to provide coverage of the event via the dedicated eSports hub
