Beloved Korean BBQ food chain (also known as Genesis BBQ) has announced today that they have bought out a popular League of Legends team and renamed them.
The team played under ESC Ever in the LCK Summer Split last year while playing 9th but had troubles during the Spring Split match-ups.
The team will be rebranded to the name: BBQ Olivers during the Spring 2017 Split.
KeSPA chairman: Jeon Byung, stated this about the acquiring of the team, “through support from BBQ—who lead Korea’s healthy dining culture—I am certain that Korean esports and BBQ will grow together. Going forward, the association will not grow lazy in its efforts to create an healthy esports ecosystem and an esports culture everyone can enjoy".
We look forward to seeing how the team will perform under the new management and branding.
