Global sportswear brand Nike unveiled 16 individual team uniforms for its sponsored League of Legends Pro League (LPL), the game’s top competition in China. The general design of the kits features a general “wide V style,” different color combination with LPL team logo, and the Nike Swoosh logo. The Uniforms will be available for public purchase from October 1.
During the last day of the League of Legends eight-year festival in Shanghai’s Mercedes-Benz Arena, the LPL determined that three teams, FunPlus Phoenix (FPX), Royal Never Give Up (RNG), Invictus Gaming (IG) will attend the League of Legends World Championship 2019 to represent the LPL. At the ceremony, representatives for all 16 LPL teams were in attendance, wearing their own branded team uniforms.
In addition, FPX, RNG, and IG will wear their uniforms during the 2019 League of Legends World Championship, and the remaining teams will wear their uniforms during the 2020 LPL Spring Season.
It should be noted that the uniforms do not feature any of the teams’ sponsors. For one of the LPL teams, Team WE, there is a blank space on the left side of the chest, where the team’s logo should be. The Esports Observer has not yet been able to confirm why this logo is missing. In addition to the uniforms, Nike will also release a “Nike x LPL” streetwear apparel collection, including t-shirts and hoodies.
This uniforms and co-branded apparel line is part of a four-year exclusive apparel sponsorship deal between Nike and TJ Sports—the joint venture set up between League of Legends publisher Riot Games, and its parent company Tencent Holdings. According to Chinese media outlet Lanxiong Sports, the deal is valued at ¥50M ($7.48M) a year, including cash and equivalent products.
