If you didn't get enough eMLS last month, fear not – the next event is right around the corner.

Opened in 2018, the Hall of Fame is a museum is dedicated to celebrating the United States' rich soccer history, weaving U.S. soccer history and technology to provide a unique look into the game's past and future.
Manning the consoles once again for the Chicago Fire is Enrique Espinoza (gamer tag: BITW18 II), competing alongside the likes of eMLS League Series One champion doolsta (Philadelphia Union) and 2018 eMLS Cup winner Kid M3mito (Houston Dynamo).
Each of the 22 players representing an MLS team will compete in a round-robin regular season before the League Series Two live stream begins. Just like in soccer across the globe, players will earn three points for a win, one for a tie and zero for a loss. The top four gamers in each of the Eastern and Western Conferences will then advance to compete for the title – and a $5,000 prize in the live streamed, single-elimination tournament.
In addition to advancement in League Series Two, the points earned that day will have a larger bearing on players' positioning for eMLS Cup. The five players with the most accumulated points across League Series One and Two, as well as the eMLS Cup regular season, will be seeded into the eMLS Cup finals bracket, while the final seed will be reserved for the winner of a Last Chance Bracket featuring remaining players.
For fans who want to catch all the action but can't make it to the event, League Series Two will be live streamed on MLSsoccer.com, Twitch and Twitter. Be sure to also follow @eMLS on Twitter to stay up to date on the latest details on League Series Two, eMLS Cup and more.
