ENCE withdraws from the NLC - Granit Gaming Joins

The Finnish team ENCE has chosen to withdraw from the Northern League of Legends Championship. ENCE barely missed out on the playoffs in the NLC Summer Split and also participated in the NLC Fall Open earlier in 2020.

We are saddened to leave NLC while we have truly enjoyed being part of the league from the very beginning. We want to thank DreamHack and RIOT Games for the opportunity and wish best of luck to all teams for the upcoming Spring Split.

With ENCE withdrawing from the NLC Granit Gaming has been promoted from the Telia Esports Series Sweden league. Granit Gaming finished second in the Telia Esport Series Masters and competed in the NLC Relegation Series earlier this summer. 

We are humbled and grateful for the opportunity to play in the next split of the NLC. We will make sure to seize it and make the best out of every moment presented to us.

The NLC 2021 Spring Split is bound to start in January and to receive the latest updates about the league and its matches, make sure to follow NLClol.
