Leading eSports organisation Fnatic has made it to the League of Legends World Finals in China, which starts on Saturday and runs through until November 4th. After storming home with a 3-0 victory over H2K in the regional qualifiers, the team have touched down in China to compete for world glory. This major achievement firmly positions Fnatic as a world leader in eSports and enables the brand to be recognised and supported within the Chinese marketplace.
Following a successful year for the Fnatic LoL team, the squad flew out to Korea for bootcamp, before continuing onto China where they’re now ready to kick up a storm in the World Finals of one of the greatest MOBA games on the planet. With over a million players globally, the elite teams are among the world’s best players and the World Championships will certainly put them to the test.
The World Finals starts on Saturday 23rd September, and Fnatic’s championships kick off on Monday 25th September in Group C against Young Generation followed on Tuesday by the Kaos Latin Gamers.

Stewart said: “We are really excited to be back at the World Championships after missing out last year. We will have to make it through a challenging playing stage before progressing to the main event.. 2018 Worlds will be a great experience for our newer players and we truly believe that we can beat anyone!
