Barça will enter the League of Legends pro scene by joining the 2022 LVP Superliga, the game’s top pro league in Spain.

With over 2.6 million viewing hours recorded and five million strong audience in 2021, Superliga is one of the best avenues for FCB to connect football and LoL fans.

In Superliga, Barça will compete alongside teams such as G2 Arctic, MAD Lions Madrid, and Vodafone Giants, the 2021 Summer champions.

Barça will be joined by more friendly competition in the league alongside a new club owned by streamer Ibai Llanos and FCB vice-captain Gerard Piqué.

As the org’s fourth team in competitive gaming, FC Barcelona is using this opportunity to further strengthen its commitment to its esports sector.

“The commitment to developing Barça’s new esports division forms part of the club’s digital strategy and is motivated by the same on-field desire of FC Barcelona — to become a main player in the digital esports sector worldwide in the next few years, and to take the Barça brand to countries such as the US or China,” said FCB in its official press release.
