The Superliga is going to be more stacked than ever heading into the 2022 season. Fnatic has acquired a spot in the league by entering a partnership with Team Queso, the organization announced today.
This comes a day after Spanish League of Legends caster and streamer Ibai and soccer pro Gerard Piqué announced that they acquired Astralis Stormbringer’s spot in the Superliga.
Team Queso entered the Superliga in 2019 when it replaced MAD Lions, who joined the LEC through the Splyce rebranding. Although Team Queso have remained in the league since then, they’ve earned mitigated results by ending every season in the middle of the standings. This partnership with Fnatic could enable the team to go to the next level and make a splash in the 2022 Superliga season.
Fnatic is the third LEC organization to enter the Superliga after MAD Lions and G2 Esports. Fnatic CEO Sam Mathews confirmed that the team “will be our FNC Rising squad from now on.”
