CEVO (formerly the CyberEvolution Volunteer Organization) was an esports organizing company, well known for being a pioneer in the North American esports scenes in the early 2000s. Founded in December of 2004, CEVO hosted online tournaments and leagues for multiple esports, including the Championship Gaming Series Pro-Am leagues, as well as a professional league for Counter-Strike, Counter-Strike: Source and later Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. In later years, CEVO pivoted towards esports event logistics company, organizing online and offline events for companies and sponsors.
On July 24, 2017, Gfinity acquired CEVO for $2.7 million, with much of CEVO's staff eventually moving onto Gfinity in the following years.
