Paris Saint-Germain Esports Announces League of Legends Roster

By   /   Dec 15, 2016

Having stirred the esports world in October, Paris Saint-Germain Esports today announced its League of Legends roster in spectacular fashion.

Setting aside tradition, PSG went with a partially animated video to introduce the five starting members who will be entering the European Challenger Series. Provided that they succeed, one of the largest football clubs in the world will be having a presence in the European League Championship Series (EU LCS) next year.

The roster is as follows, comprising impressive picks from both local and foreign regions:

  • TOP: Etienne “Steve” Michels
  • JUN: Thomas “Kirei” Yuen
  • MID: Jin “Blanc” Sung-min
  • ADC: Na “Pilot” Woo-Hyung
  • SUP: Hampus “Sprattel” Abrahamsson

Both Steve and Sprattel were former starting members of FC Schalke 04, the German association football club that bought Elements’ EU LCS spot last split before being relegated to the Challenger Series. Blanc and Pilot, on the other hand, represented Jin Air Green Wings. Finally, Kirei was picked up after his time with Dignitas EU.

Paris Saint-Germain entered the esports fold by purchasing the League of Legends European Challenger Series spot of Team Huma for “approximately $70,000”. Soon after, the top French sports entity signed former support and Fnatic superstar Bora “YellOwStaR” Kim as its head of esports.

There’s a lot of buzz around Paris Saint-Germain Esports. It was initially rumored that the organization had set aside a massive budget of €20 million for esports. This was later waved away by an official spokesperson, clarifying that the figure is far from the truth but PSG still boasts a pretty decent budget for its European League of Legends team.
