Valencia FC eSports has presented its new team for the League of Legends, the most popular competitive video-game in existence today, which attracted an audience of 50 million people at its last Finals1. With this new addition, Valencia eSports has expanded its Electronic Sports Division, in which it already has professional teams for the games known as Hearthstone and Rocket League.
League of Legends is a video-game that falls within the MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) genre developed by Riot Games, in which two teams of 5 persons wage battle on a map in order to conquer the enemy team’s base. Official competitions are held at a worldwide level and prizes valued at millions of dollars are handed out throughout the season.
In the words of Sergio Benet, the Head of eSports at Valencia FC, “we have created a very solid squad with players such as Pepii and Adryh, who are champions from the DDH (LVP) and LCS Expansion Tournament, or Itsi, who was the MVP of the Final Cup of 2015. We have also created a solid structure and technical team featuring some considerable experience”.
Víctor Santamaría, head coach, has added that “we have a great team in order to fight for glory in Valencia FC’s colors. We feel it is a great responsibility for us to represent the team, which is now expanding into different eSports disciplines”.
