Update on the NLC Spring 2021 Participating Teams

There will be a change in the teams competing in the upcoming split for the 2021 Spring season of the NLC. Phelan Gaming, who competed in the NLC 2020 Summer season as Munster Rugby Gaming, will no longer participate. Instead, the organization will now compete under its original name, Phelan Gaming, in the upcoming UKLC.

This shift is due to some operational constraints from the Summer Season which have been resolved. DreamHack has worked with Ciaran Walsh, CEO of Phelan Gaming, and have mutually agreed that the team will participate in the UKLC Spring 2021 split.

As a result of these changes, DreamHack has awarded the vacant NLC slot to KOVA Esports. KOVA won the Telia Esports Series Masters, which is the play-off for the National Leagues, right below NLC. They also competed in the NLC Summer Regulation. DreamHack is excited to welcome KOVA to the NLC for the 2021 Spring Season!

All teams affected by this decision have been informed. For more information about the NLC Spring Split and updates, please follow us on Twitter.
