Estimated time to read: 2 Minutes
Based on the example of the American football association NFL, Samsung distributes championship rings to the winners of the League of Legends World Championship 2017.
For Samsung Galaxy’s Roster, Samsung’s eSports factory team, 2017 was an extremely successful year. Despite some hurdles during the jumping and summer split, the team crowned itself the king of eSports by winning the League of Legends World Championship in November 2017.
Despite the change of the entire team to the eSports organisation KSV Esports, former sponsor Samsung knows about the success of the players and hands them one championship ring each.
Master Rings like the Super Bowl
The awarding of a championship ring is not uncommon in the world of professional sport. Teams of the NBA, NFL and NHL are always honoured with such a piece of jewellery after winning the championship.
The Master Rings in the Footall for winning the Super Bowl are particularly magnificent.
SK Telecom T1 – First eSport Team with rings
Samsung Galaxy is the second team to be awarded championship wrestling. A year before, corresponding rings had already been produced for the roster of SK Telecom T1.
With the acquisition of the complete Samsung Galaxy roster, KSV Esports wants to continue where Samsung Galaxy left off and aims to win the championship in 2018.
In addition to League of Legends, the eSports organisation is also active in Overwatch.
