League of Legends Challenger Series Qualifier spot up for grabs; Live final tickets now available for March 18th and 19th
The finalists of the ESL UK Premiership Spring Season have been revealed after a season that saw the eight best League of Legends and Counter-Strike:Global Offensive teams battling it out over seven weeks of games.
After a close Counter-Strike season, it came down to the final game of the season to decide which two teams out of MnM Gaming (formerly Fish123), FM ESPORTS and xL eSports would clash in the finals for the £4,500 prize pot. Ultimately, it’s FM ESPORTS and MnM Gaming that’ll be going head-to-head in Leicester on March 18th.
The battle for a place in the League of Legends final this season was strongly contested, especially as the teams will be fighting for not only £4,500, but a coveted qualifier spot in the upcoming League of Legends Challenger Series. After a gruelling seven week campaign, we can now reveal it’s Team XENEX and MnM Gaming that are set to duke it out in Leicester on March 19th.
Joe Fenny, ESL UK Talent Manager, said “The aim of the ESL UK Premiership has always been to foster homegrown talent and help teams reach their full potential in order to progress to the world stage. This year we’ve seen a higher standard than ever before, and all competitors should be incredibly proud. We look forward to a truly unforgettable final featuring four excellent teams!”
The finals take place at ESL Studios in Leicester and tickets are available now.
