Marking a monumental moment in Esports, Faker re-signed a three-year deal with T1 that stands as the maximum length permitted by LoL developer Riot Games. Aside from now becoming a shareholder in the team, the world-class mid laner has also guaranteed he will transition into a leadership role within T1 once he retires from playing professionally.
Despite being offered lucrative contracts from other teams, Faker has remained loyal to T1 his whole career which started in 2013. Since establishing himself as one of the world’s top League of Legends players, Faker has become a national and global icon that has led the Champions Korea (LCK) team to three World Championships (2013, 2015 and 2016), two Mid-Season Invitational victories, and eight titles.
