It’s that time once again – a new season of UK, Ireland and Nordics League of Legends esports is underway: the NLC 2023 Summer Division 1 split.

The Northern League of Legends Championship has been running for a few years now, and gives teams in Northern Europe a chance to compete at a regional level, below the LEC, with a pathway to the EMEA Masters.

With all the rumours over, teams have confirmed their rosters. Two notable UK changes include UK scene veteran ADC Toaster returning to our shores after playing for several years in different regions and on various teams.

Ruddy have also signed Shihan, a top-laner who was once helped by Caedrel in solo queue after going through a bad time.

Here’s a roundup of rosters and broadcast talent for the NLC 2023 Summer Season.

The main change this season is UK esports organisation Fourth Wall taking an NLC Division 1 spot, after Division 1 Spring champions Riddle Esports withdrew from the NLC.

This brings the number of UK-based orgs in NLC Division 1 to three (Fourth Wall, Ruddy Esports and Verdant), with one org (Nativz) from Ireland, with the remaining four representing the Nordics.
