November 3, 2006-(Miami, FL)- The Professional Gamers League of America ( http://thepgl.org) has announced that Ultimate Gamers Championship, its videogame competition series which will be held at Otronicon 2007 ( http://otronicon.org) in Orlando, FL January 2007, will also bring two national qualifiers to Xbox Live.

PGL CEO Jay Marrero was quoted saying, "As improvements to online console gaming are being made, we are creating more opportunities for the competitive gaming community to participate in sanctioned competitions from their own homes. Gamers who would not otherwise had a chance to compete onsite, are now able to compete and advance via online qualifiers. In the meantime, we continue to improve our onsite competitions by providing guaranteed cash prizes, more game stations, better equipment, better venues, and more time to hold a successful tournament. We feel Otronicon is an incredible venue for us because it allows for an improved gaming environment for the competitors while still making a great experience for the spectator."

Registration for UGC tournaments opens online on November 4, 2006.
