Some of the game titles are Counter-Strike: Source, Call of Duty 4 and FIFA 2009. The league organizers hope they could avoid the failures of the past Championship Gaming League that ended in 2008.
"We've been planning this for several weeks and have put three levels in place: an open level where people play for fun, a semi-pro level that we hope will encourage people from all sectors, and then there is a pro-gaming part which launches today," said the UKeSA chairman Ray Mia.
Michael O'Dell, the owner of team Dignitas believes that this is a good time to launch new leagues, despite the world's current financial situation.
"The UKeSA is bringing structure to the sport and an organisation to leagues we have not seen before," O'Dell said, and added, "in the current climate it's hard to get sponsors, but people will buy games. We're going to see a lot more people staying in and playing games. I don't think gaming will have a recession."
