The AHGL is a computer gaming league for major corporations, a modern media alternative to the corporate sports clubs of the past. The AHGL is the brainchild of celebrity gamer Sean "Day(9)" Plott, who was recently named to Forbes "30 under 30" list for his work as a gaming sportcaster and "funsmith."
Congratulations to Amazon and Epic Systems, and the more than 30 corporations that participated in the league!
