The Worldwide Federation of Gaming

BY Andrew Miesner / June 23, 2009
A new gaming league is hitting the scene this July and it promises to be the next big thing. Whether it’ll be a change for the better or another league to crash and burn is yet to be seen.

The Worldwide Federation of Gaming was envisioned and established in late 2008 by CEO Michael A. Winchester. The slogan which W.W.F.O.G is going by is, “Built By Gamers. Backed By Gamers.” The Worldwide Federation will be the first federation for gamers.

Here are a few players who are endorsing the league:

Justin Wong – 2009 Street Fighting 4 National Champion
Jerry Wang – 3 Time Yu-Gi-Oh Shonen Jump Champion
Chris Bowling – 2008 US National Yu-Gi-Oh Shonen Jump Champion

Michael “Yipes” Mendoza – 2007 Marvel vs. Capcom 2 Evo World Champion
Arturo “Sabin” Sanchez – 2009 WCG Fighter Club Runner up
Carl “Perfect Legend” White – 2006 Dead or Alive Evo World Champion
