The Professional Fighters League (PFL), the fastest growing and most innovative sports league, has entered into a partnership with innovative gaming platform, Rival.

Through the partnership, Rival will launch the PFL’s dedicated gaming community enabling PFL fans to participate, compete and engage in competitions with popular gaming titles.
