1st Annual Music-Sports Expo

 
 
 
 
 
WHO ARE WE
We are the Music-Sports League (MSL), the first-ever music performance sports organization. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit headquartered in Newport News, VA that's dedicated to the development and promotions of independent music through the advancement of our Music Performance Sports Programs (MPSP). Our first MPSP is called, 'Independent Artist Competition Series' or IACS, which is an all-genre unsigned recording artist sports league, and the first of its kind. In the IACS, the unsigned artists are the players, in which, in order to compete in our regular season, they would be required to be drafted. The IACS includes a combine, draft, regular season, and playoffs to determine the best-unsigned talent in the nation, and eventually, the world. Our ultimate goal is to get this to be an Olympic sport.

To bring further awareness to the Music-Sports experience, the MSL will present the IACS-SvS Playoffs. The MSL is currently running the IACS-SvS Series, which is an online song vs song 8-game competition that's being run until May 2022. The champions of each game will be rewarded with an all-expense-paid trip to compete live on stage at the Music-Sports Expo. The 8 IACS-SvS game champions will face off in a single-elimination tournament to determine an IACS-SvS National Champion. The champion will be rewarded with an all-expense-paid trip to Hollywood, CA to perform on a nationally televised show. For more details on this, please visit the MSL website.

This will be in a relaxed lounge setting to further promote entrepreneurs to mingle, promote and create partnerships all while having some great food, drinks, and enjoying some entertainment.
