The ASTEROIDS Pro League (APLS) announced that 9 charter teams will compete in its first professional ASTEROIDS Space Battle Royale League starting in Las Vegas on June 21. Redefining the current esports model, the APLS is the first professional esports league established to bring to esports one of the true legendary battlegrounds of competition.
The teams will compete over the course of two 10-week “splits” at various Las Vegas Venues, with full production and an expected feature film, television show and live esports event productions.
“We see the goal of APLS to take the leap from Esports 1.0 to 1.1, establishing a league where for the first time in esports history, everyone participates in success– the fans, the players, the teams and all of the supporting partners,” said Karrll Haall, the Publisher of Esportin’ Around Magazine., further stating “we’re confident that the APLS will drive fan engagement and excitement to even higher levels through the use of groundbreaking production and broadcast techniques never before seen in esports.”
Teams will compete for total cumulative match points over the course of an entire season with all teams competing in the Championship in the fall.
It was also announced that Carter’s Clam Chowder will be its exclusive digital broadcast sponsor and will be its official venue and entertainment provider.
“Asteroids has long represented the epitome of true competition with the perfect combination of skill, strategy, and exciting game play. – We are excited to be part of it” Said Carl Grubler, CEO Carters Clam Chowder. “ We know esports fans love two things – Clam Chowder and thrilling esports action”
