League for Gamers

The name pretty much says it all right. It’s a league. For gamers. In South Africa. We had to clear the last bit up a little.

League for Gamers has launched in South Africa with an online Black Ops 2 tournament for Xbox 360 featuring 18 teams and they appear to have Incredible Connection backing them.

We’re pretty sure they have plenty more planned in the future, so keep tabs on them on Twitter. For the tournament bracket, head here.
