Released in 2009, League of Legends was an attempt to create a new MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) game to rival the current heavyweights Heroes of Newerth and Defence of the Ancients. With many of the development team coming from the original DotA allstars creators this was their chance to perfect the genre. With the game gaining massive popularity rapidly the company behind League, Riot Games, put a large emphasis on turning their game into a spectator eSport.
2016 was a big year for UK League of Legends with a promised spot in the Challenger Series Qualifier for the winner of the ESL UK Premiership. This has brought big investment into the scene and ties the UK with the European scene.
