We are the first world champions.
We are seven time EU LCS champions.
We are six Worlds attendances.
We are now a part of the League of Legends European Championship.
League of Legends is one of Fnatic's most storied games. After winning the World Championship in the esport's first season, we knew that our involvement in this game and with Riot Games would become an institution. We've since found millions of new members in our incredible community. We are now delighted to be continuing our participation within League of Legends in the revamps League of Legends European Championship.
We saw two European teams reach the Worlds 2018 semifinal this year; we saw the Black and Orange progress to our second Worlds final in the Incheon Stadium. With old rivalries made and new rivalries to make, we're incredibly excited to see European League of Legends become the most competitive it's ever been as we head into 2019 with the league in its new form.
“It's without a doubt that the League of Legends Championship series is the most established and prestigious professional esports competition in the world. At Fnatic we're proud that we've been part of this immense growth from the start, having been the first world champions in its inaugural season in 2011 and reaching the world finals this year again. Signalled by the new name and look, the European league is one of the most competitive leagues globally and we're extremely excited to continue to play a pivotal role in the LEC. With the support of our fans and partners, we'll remain top contenders for the world crown for the years to come!” - Wouter Sleijffers, Fnatic CEO
"We're incredibly excited to continue in representing EU as a region on the highest level, especially in such a storied esport for our organisation. We're thrilled to be intensifying our partnership with Riot and the other members of the European Championship; together we're pushing esports as the New World Sport, which is the core of Fnatic's mission. The League of Legends European Championship allows us to invest further into support staff and, in general, our platform as an organisation - for pro players, grassroots and the fans," - Patrik 'cArn' Sättermon, Fnatic CGO and co-owner
