Format Update to the NLC Relegation Series

League update regarding the NLC and UKLC Relegation Series

As Riot Games is taking steps to streamline the overall ERL ecosystem, this means some changes are in the pipeline for the NLC and the broader ERL ecosystem. With these changes on the horizon, this means that looking ahead to the NLC Spring 2022, the NLC ecosystem will look a bit different, due to that the NLC and UKLC relegation series intended to happen will no longer take place as planned. Activities to replace the relegations, alongside much more detailed news about the NLC’s new format will be announced in the coming weeks.

We ask for the community's patience in this matter. We can assure fans and players that all teams and current players in the ecosystem will have just as many opportunities to compete and tune in as previously. Please stay tuned to and NLClol on Twitter for further updates!
