Echo Fox Secures A Franchise Spot In The ‘League Of Legends’ Championship Series

Posted by November 20, 2017 Comment

Today, Riot Games announced all of the franchise teams being included in the League Of Legends Championship Series, and Echo Fox received one of the ten spots for the LCS. The other nine franchise teams to be included in the league are 100 Thieves, Clutch Gaming, Golden Guardians, OpTic Gaming, Team SoloMid (TSM), Cloud9, Counter Logic Gaming (CLG), and Team Liquid. The company sent out a press release with a couple quotes below in the snippet we have for you, about their excitement to be in the LCS. The team has been a part of the North American league since 2015 when they purchased Gravity’s spot.

“Riot Games has been at the forefront of esports since it installed the LCS back in 2014,” said Rick Fox, three-time NBA Champion and founder of Echo Fox. “We are extremely honored and proud that Echo Fox will be one of the charter franchises in North America and our selection further proves that Echo Fox will continue its ascent to becoming the number one esport organization in the world.”

Most recently, Echo Fox was included as part of an investment partnership between Vision Esports and the New York Yankees. Through the investment, both companies will work to accelerate the growth and increase brand awareness for Echo Fox around the globe. The support from the partnership will aim to mirror the management of Echo Fox in a manner similar to traditional professional sports properties. Echo Fox is known for providing players with an ideal environment that promotes their continued development and growth as professional athletes through offerings like player housing, fitness programs and more.

Jared Jeffries, President of Echo Fox, is hopeful that this will be an exciting season for both the LCS team players and fans of Echo Fox. “We are on the forefront of something magnificent for the esports world and we’re looking forward to competing against nine other world-class esport organizations to win this inaugural season.”
