about the UKlc

The UKLC is the pinnacle of UK league of legends, showcasing and nurturing the top UK teams and esports talent. The logo itself sets the standard: built around a tower that traces back to the iconic British castles of old, it represents our teams’ climb to national and continental glory. It is the symbol for our players’ fight to declare themselves champions.
