On October 6th, the world-famous European esports organizations Rogue and KOI officially announced they had agreed to a “strategic alliance” that will begin next year. This deal will allow KOI to join the League of Legends European Championship.
For the 2023 LEC Spring Split, Rogue will also be rebranded to KOI. However, the organization’s current management group will remain in charge of running the League of Legends team.
Additionally, Ibai, the co-owner of KOI, will now serve as an ambassador to the organization. This will allow fans from around the globe to connect with the world-famous streamer through metaverse experiences, brand activations, and original content.
“I couldn’t be more proud of KOI and what we’ve been able to achieve in such a short period of time,” Ibai Llanos said. “This partnership with Rogue just accelerates our growth and broadens our opportunities to provide the most engaging and exciting experiences for our fans.”
Rogue was founded in 2016 and competes in League of Legends, Rainbow Six Siege, and Rocket League. Meanwhile, KOI was launched late last year and specializes in League of Legends.
