IGN And Cosmopolitan To Offer eSports

IGN Entertainment and the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas recently announced they have formed a multi-event partnership to bring IGN Pro League video gaming tournaments to Las Vegas. The first event, IPL 4, will be held April 6-8 at the Cosmopolitan and the second event, IPL 5, will occur in August.

IPL 4 already is becoming one of the most highly anticipated e-Sports events of the year, featuring the finals for Korea’s Global StarCraft Team Leagues. The event will be the first time a GSTL final has been hosted outside of Korea. Through partnerships with the Cosmopolitan and the GSTL, IPL 4 could easily surpass the viewership of traditional sports. The Global StarCraft League is the leading professional StarCraft II organization in Korea, hosting team-based competitions in more than 180 countries worldwide.
