Tyler McGraw has recently opened his own business, Tyler’s CCGs, at The Complex, a sports complex that doubles as a mini-mall. In walks Jordan Hyland, an old classmate of Tyler’s and intern who recently finished running an adult soccer league at the facility.

On that day, Complex Esports was born.
