Mike Sepso, co-founder of Major League Gaming and a former Activision executive, has joined the board of directors of esports organization 100 Thieves.


Founded by Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag, a former Call of Duty professional, 100 Thieves has become well-known within the esports scene for its fashionable jerseys and up-and-coming Call of Duty and League of Legends teams.


Sepso’s partnership with Haag has been a long time coming. “I’ve known Matt since he literally was a teenager and had just started out in esports as an MLG player,” Sepso told The Verge.


Sepso’s esports expertise is multifaceted. After co-founding Major League Gaming with Sundance DiGiovanni, he innovated at Activision by introducing the franchise model that has become one of the hallmarks of the Overwatch League.


Though 100 Thieves’ lifestyle brand is already well-established—last month, the organization unveiled an entire house dedicated to the production of esports content—it has yet to reach true premier status due to its relatively underdeveloped pool of actual players and competitors. This is likely the area in which Sepso will best be able to aid the growing organization.


Sepso joins 100 Thieves’s board alongside Haag, COO John Robinson, venture capitalist Jake Cohen, and entertainment industry mogul Scooter Braun.


Do you think 100 Thieves is on its way to becoming a major esports franchise?
