News - 20 Mar 2017

Last weekend, ESL UK crowned the winners of its UK and Ireland Premiership Spring 2017 tournament for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO) and League of Legends.

On Saturday, UK organisation FM-eSports beat fellow UK side MnM Gaming in a thrilling CSGO final 3-1.

  • Tramaine "Stan1ley" Stanley
  • Brandom "weber" Weber
  • Neil "nEiLZiNHo" Finlay
  • Aaron "fre1" Frei
  • Reece "Puls3" Marrs

And on the Sunday, MnM Gaming defeated top-of-the-table side Team XENEX 3-0 in the League of Legends final. In doing so, they pick up their second ESL Premiership League of Legends trophy in a row, and qualify for Riot Games' European Challenger Series Qualifiers tournament which takes place summer 2017.

MnM's roster was as follows:

  • Ashley "Teimpo" Mayes
  • Alex "CandyFloss" Cartwright
  • Emil "Larssen" Larsson

Each winning team won £3,000 and the runner-up took home £1,500 - that's on top of individual prizing from the group stages.
