Virtus.pro enters the mobile MOBA territory with the launch of League of Legends: Wild Rift roster. The team will be operating under the club’s academy division VP.Prodigy.

Sergey Glamazda, CEO of Virtus.pro:

“League of Legends is one of the most popular brands in the gaming industry. Riot Games works really hard towards developing every single piece of IP the company owns, so it’s no wonder that LoL: WR is one the most popular and promising mobile games in the world which now has its first full competitive season ahead. We are entering this year by expanding into this new territory.

Our roster has both experienced and young players and a coach who are determined to become an elite team and compete on the highest level. They start off in the academy tag VP.Prodigy where we usually test our theories. We can’t rule out the possibility of transferring the squad to the club’s main division. Our current goal is to have a good run in the first season of the EMEA Championship and qualify for the Icons Global Championship 2022.”

The first tournament for the roster is going to be a regional qualifier for EMEA Championship 2022 Season 1 played online. Best teams will qualify for the LAN in Barcelona where participants of the Icons Global Championship 2022 will be determined: one team will go directly to the Group Stage and one to the Play-in stage.
