Major League Gaming will be broadcasting its upcoming MLG Vegas tournament via YouTube and its own EVE player on MLG.tv, the company announced today. Notably, there has been no confirmation of a Twitch stream.

MLG has partnered with YouTube to broadcast matches, news, and analysis from the event on the MLG YouTube channel. Earlier this year parent company Activision Blizzard announced that it was expanding its MLG.tv streaming platform through a partnership with Facebook, although there has been no confirmation that MLG Vegas will be streamed to the platform.

Yahoo Esports has reached out to MLG for clarification and will report back if we hear more.

The Overwatch NA Invitational will take place at MLG Vegas. It will be the last major Overwatch tournament of the year, featuring eight teams competing for a share of the $100,000 prize pool in Las Vegas on December 16-18.  

EVE stands for Enhanced Viewing Experience technology, a feature which lets spectators “dive deeper into the stats, players, and teams during the broadcast.”

Those interested in attending MLG Vegas can purchase tickets to the event online, with prices starting at $50 for general admission. The event will also be hosting the first North American Regional for the Call of Duty World League as well as End Game, a festival celebrating digital culture featuring musical performances and interactive activities.
