All teams that will participate in the LCK franchise have been decided. The ten companies that were previously announced have become the franchise target teams participating in 2021 LoL Champions Korea (LCK).
Several Korean official sources announced that the priority negotiations regarding the seal of contracts of the LCK with the 10 teams that will join the franchise format of the LCK from 2021 have been completed.
Therefore, we finally have the list of the ten participants of the Korean major league:
- Sandbox Gaming
- Afreeca Freecs
- Damwon Gaming
- KT Rolster
- Team Dynamics
- Hanwha Life Esports
- HyFresh Blade
There has been only one change in the list compared to the 2020 season: SeolHaeOne Prince, which ended in the last position with a score of 1-17 in the last Summer Split, will no longer participate in the league, and this position will be occupied by HyFresh Blade.
Despite this is the definitive list, the names of the teams might not be the same.
Depending on the sponsors, some teams names could change in the near future, like Team Dynamics, that has been acquired by Nongshim, and have scheduled an announcement in November, once the World Championship finishes.
