After recently announcing the Northern League of legends Championship (NLC), today, Dreamhack unveiled the new UK League of Legends Championship (UKLC) teams and qualification structure.

The announcement also stated that the top 3 teams from the UK Esports League (UKEL), the tournament that has served as an unofficial league two since summer 2019, would receive an invite to the closed qualifier (congratulations to NSG, London & Bulldog). After an unfortunate run in the UKEL Season Two, finishing 8th, we do not qualify for a closed qualifier invite.

With this announcement, we have had a management meeting to review the viability of us competing in the scene. We have decided that we will continue to run League of Legends division as long as we can field a viable roster with the ability to qualify for the UKLC.

Our Managing Director commented:

“It is a pleasant suprise to see the UKEL teams receiving invited to the UKLC closed qualifier. It means that the efforts put into the UKEL by both the teams and the organisers havent gone unoticed.”

“While we didn’t receive an invite to the UKLC or closed qualifiers, I am determined to try and secure a spot in the UKLC for Viperio, as I do view it as one of the best structured leagues within the UK esports ecosystem. I’m willing to invest more time and money than ever before if it means we have an opportunity to compete in this league, as I do believe it would be a great step in Viperio’s competition journey.”

– Christopher Sword, Managing Director at Viperio

We will begin conversations with relevant parties as we look to build an open qualifier roster. We will not be holding trials as we aim to acquire a pre-made team of 5+ for this event.

Players that have not been contacted by a member of our management, but are interested in representing Viperio should reach out to us via [email protected]

We will continue to monitor announcement, and reach accordingly. be sure to follow our social media channels to keep up-to date with our organisation.
