As the new season for the League of Legends European Championship dawns, we at G2 are ready to once again return to the top. Our LEC Journey began with the uniting of two kings under our banner and we’re now pleased to confirm the staff that will be helping us to claim our inaugural LEC title.
Firstly, our head coach Fabian “GrabbZ” Lohmann has re-signed with us for three years. GrabbZ has been an instrumental part of our success, leading G2 to becoming one of the Top 4 League of Legends teams in the world. We are confident that Grabbz will help lead us into a prosperous 2019 in the LEC.
Speaking about the announcement, Grabbz said:
“I am excited to enter the new LEC era with G2 on a long-term basis and to develop structures which will help to secure G2 as the prime team in Europe for years to come. With added firepower in the roster and staff, we will make sure to make the G2 army proud.”
We are also pleased to announce that Christopher “Duffman” Duff is returning, but this time as an in-house Assistant Coach and Head Analyst. Duffman’s passion for League of Legends and calm demeanour have been a valuable asset to our roster these past few years and we hope this success continues into the next season.
Last but certainly not least, there’s more to a world-class team than the game – that’s why we’ve sought out the best of the best to support our staff and players from behind the scenes. Please give a warm welcome to Mitch “Krepo/Boris” Voorspoels as our League of Legends General Manager – though he prefers “team helper”. We’re grateful to have his expertise as we enter the Spring Split.
Speaking about the announcement, our CEO Carlos ‘ocelote’ Rodriguez said the following:
“I’m delighted to have Grabbz and Duffman continue their journey with us to reach the top of League of Legends. They played an important role in our history making run this year and with the incredible line-up we’ve assembled for the LEC and supported with a veteran such as Mitch, I’m confident we can accomplish greatness in 2019. We’re ready to kick ass in the LEC!”
At G2, we are determined to be a dominant force in League, both in the LEC and on the international stage. With an all-star roster and a fantastic support staff to assist them, we’re ready to get back and prove ourselves to the world. We’re ever grateful for your continued support as we enter 2019.
