IlluZion Gaming (IluZ) is a professional esports organization based in North Carolina, USA. The team was founded on May 1st, 2011 by Mihir Khadri and Davis Britt. IlluZion Gaming previously had teams in more mainstream esports such as Fortnite, Counter Strike: Global Offensive and Overwatch, but are now exclusively supporting fighting games and their communities.

In 2018, they started sponsoring players from the Super Smash Bros. community, with BONK! being their first sponsor. They further extended their roster in 2019 by signing many top smashers from the East Coast and the Washington State (Ismon being the exception, living in Texas). By the end of 2020, IlluZion Gaming also entered the Melee scene, by signing the Sheik player Spark on Halloween[1] and the Marth player LSD on January 6th, 2021. They also created an academy team.
