Major League Dodgeball Poster

Major League Dodgeball is the premier foam dodgeball league in North America. Our events include the MLD Grand Slam, the annual championship tournament of the Pro Division of Major League Dodgeball, and the Foam Dodgeball Championship (FDC), a pro-am open tournament held annually in Dallas, Texas. Our mission is to create inherent value for the sport of dodgeball for players, teams, owners, stakeholders, sponsors, advertisers and fans.

Dodgeball, one of the most popular games in the world, is now a highly competitive and highly entertaining professional sport.

The best recreational sports game of childhood for many, today’s adult sport of Dodgeball saw its inception with the popularity of the Dodgeball movie in 2004. Leagues formed across N. America and the world in the wake of the movie. But what started as recreational and social dodgeball based on the movie soon progressed into more serious tournaments as players matured in their dodgeball skill sets. Today’s top dodgeball players are highly-skilled athletes who exhibit a wide-range of athleticism. Matrix moves and catlike reflexes are common in games where many dodgeballs are moving at speeds of 70 mph or more. It is the most competitive, exciting, and entertaining sport in our opinion.

Dodgeball is now a major sport…
