SEASON 9 Champions Crowned!
Unless you have been living under a rock for the past week then you will know 4 new champions were crowned the weekend before last!
Foundation League Champions: Tyrants
Academy League Champions: Flames
Champion League Champions: Rhinos
Premier League Champions: Elite
The Flames and Rhinos both managed to break their “Championship ducts” by winning the first Championship titles in their history. The Tyrants added to their Season 8 success when they won the Champion League, by adding the Foundation League trophy to their cabinet. And last but not least the Elite added another success to their illustrious history. Winning the Premier League title gave the franchise their 3rd Championship trophy, after winning Championship titles back in Season 1 & 3.
It was a great weekend of action with 3 of the 4 Championship Series going to game 7 deciders! If you missed any of the action, check out our YouTube channel where you can see not only all the Championship Series but every broadcast series from this season!

ALL-STAR SERIES RETURNS!
Season 9 isn’t over yet! This Saturday evening the best players from each league face off in a “Battle of the Conferences”, as the Orange Conference take on the Blue Conference. Last season the Orange Conference took the bragging rights, beating their Blue counterparts over 20 games, 11-9!
This time around ZeeBee, General Manager of the Ducks, will seek revenge for the Blue Conference, as he leads his Blue stars into battle. Tasked with retaining Orange’s honour is Wizards General Manager, Isosolo. Who will come out top in this end of season showpiece? Tune in this Saturday from 7pm ET on the MLE Network to find out!
PLAY OF THE WEEK WINNERS!
The competitive play is over for another season, bar the All-Star Series, but there’s small matter of announcing the last two winners of Play of the Week (in case you missed them). A big thank you to BAWLS for their continued support this season and for sponsoring Play of the Week.
Conference Finals Winner: Cearu (Elite)
Championship Series Winner: O.G.S.R (Rhinos)
There’s been some progress on the franchise logo front! 4 more logos have been completed with the overall total now sitting at 8, that’s a quarter of all the logos for all those mathematicians out there. Those 8 franchises are: Aviators, Bears, Blizzard, Bulls, Comets, Demolition, Elite, Spectre! Of course we will not be revealing the logos until all 32 are complete! Currently there’s no definitive timeline for when this will be but hopefully all 32 will be complete in the near future.
SGT & SCOOBY TAKE A BREAK
Wondering where those “loveable” scamps have been these past couple of Monday evenings? Well yes you would be right in thinking they have been shirking their responsibilities! No need to worry folks, Sgt. & Scoobs are taking a break from the “Sgt. Scooby Show” during the off-season. They will no doubt return in Season 10 and who knows they may do the odd special show before then.
With another season done & dusted we want to get your thoughts. Accompanying this article in Discord will be a link to the Community Survey. Please take your time to fill this in as best you can. We appreciate all the feedback we receive and look to use it to improve what we do.
Phew what a season and what an end to the season! Big GGs and well played to those who competed in the Championship Series. Each final was full of dramatic moments, clutch plays & great teamwork. Full credit to all players for their efforts.
We would like to take this moment to thank everyone in the community for their involvement this season. From players to those helping out behind the scenes, Minor League Esports would be nothing without your support.
It’s been another great season and we are enthusiastic to start Season 10. The date of which is being finalised as we speak but expect it early next year. As always keep your eyes peeled here for the latest news and updates!
Have fun & see soon,
Minor League Esports
