This week we revealed the next big thing coming to UK esports: The Forge of Champions (FoC). We've been working hard with our new tournament organizer LVP to build a tournament that will see the UK players you know and love from the UK Premiereship battle it out against raw untested talent to see who will be forged into a champion!
FoC is a circuit of four qualifying tournaments followed by a grand final. A £50,000 prize pool will be distributed among the best teams, and at the end of the road there’s also two spots to the European Masters!
Any team from the UK or Ireland can apply to the Open Stages (3/5 players must be UK/IE residents). Those that survive the Open Stage will test their mettle against the veteran UK Premiership teams and fight for survival.
We aren't just stopping with Forge of Champions, 2019 is going to be the year of revolution for UK LoL esports. FoC will be the premiere place for established orgs to strengthen their resolve and polish their skills, but also give new teams and talent the opportunity to rise to the top and forge their own legends.
You can find all the information about the competition at [www.forgeofchampions.com](http://www.forgeofchampions.com). You can also follow [Riot UK](https://twitter.com/uk_riot)) and [LVPuk](https://twitter.com/LVPuk)) ) on Twitter to get all the updates about FoC.
**Finally, We'd like to open up the floor for question and feedback! LVP and Riot will be actively monitoring this thread to help resolve any issues or answer any questions you might have so feel free to ask!**
New legends will rise!
