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.

Competing in the UKLC

To compete in the UKLC a team must win a spot through the relegation series hosted at the end of each split taking place during spring and summer. UKLC has a partnership with the UKEL, The UK esports league, where the teams compete to reach the UKLC.

Qualification Format

With the new Northern European Ecosystem that means that there will be spots for two new teams to enter into the UKLC.

In the future there will be a promotion / relegation in the system in the same framework as the NLC. The amount of teams entering / relegating through the UKLC in the future will be set every season depending on teams relegating through the NLC, and being promoted out of the UKLC. The UKLC will always feature eight teams.
