The mission of The Professional Battle League® (PBL) is to significantly contribute to the growth of professional esports by developing and maintaining an innovative structure within professional and amateur scenes. We are creating a supported pathway for developing talent to compete at the highest level. Our platform is designed with the philosophy of building local communities to participate in game tournaments, energized by regional rivalries, at our core. As with any sport, the involvement and empowerment of the local communities is paramount to the success of eSports. The power of regional rivalries is emphasized by the PBL three-tiered approach: Franchise Clubs, Reserve Clubs and Member Teams. At each level players are able to contribute to the reputation of their regional Halo scene.
