Misfits Academy team sets sights on UK League of Legends scene

Hype is building for this evening’s qualifiers in the ESL UK & Ireland League of Legends Premiership.
With the likes of MnM, Diabolus, NerdRage, xL and more unveiling their spring 2018 UK LoL rosters, teams are preparing to secure entry into the ESL Prem, which features two groups and a second tier of competitive play.
Other teams and rosters have been added to the qualifiers sign up page. And among them is a team interestingly named stifsiM Gaming (read it backwards…)!
Their list of sign ups includes BIMBO, Chrisberg, Prosfair, Shikari and Special, as well as Joe “InnerFlame” Elouassi, the British general manager of Misfits.
It seems the LCS side is looking to the UK scene with its Academy team. It will be a full circle for the organisation, having qualified for the LCS from the UK scene a few years back.
Misfits has other links to the UK, of course. Two of its players – top-laner Alphari and jungler Maxlore – are British and originally played together in the ESL Prem a few years back with Team Infused.
stifsiM’s qualification page also features an image of the Miami Heat logo in a different colour. Misfits is of course owned by the US basketball brand.
Esports News UK reached out to our contact at Misfits and they remained coy as regards to a providing an official comment, but it seems the comments will come if this academy side successfully qualify for the ESL Prem.
UK scene heroes Aux and Nutri will be casting tonight’s qualifier matches, so don’t miss out on the stream! We’ll see you there.
