Earlier this year, Nike announced its collaboration with the League of Legends Pro League (LPL). The partnership marked the first time an athletic brand became the official shoe and clothing provider for a leading gaming league in China. With the 2019 Season World Championship set to take place in Europe, the Swoosh unveils the new Nike x LPL team kits featuring an assortment of striking designs to a number of gaming teams. The chevron pattern observed across the chest portions of each iteration pays homage to Summoner’s Rift — lauded as “the most competitive battleground in the League of legends world,” said Nike in a statement.
Highlights include Edward Gaming’s dark red uniforms, Fun Plus Phoenix’s red and gold color team kits, and Invictus Gaming’s traditional color palette of white, black and silver-gray adorning their respective jerseys. Nike’s LPL team uniforms will be available for purchase on October 1. Three teams — Fun Plus Phoenix, Royal Never Give Up and IG — will wear their uniforms during the 2019 Season World Championship. The remaining teams will adorn their uniforms during the LPL 2020 season in spring.
