NLC Spring 2022 roster roundup for Division 1 and Division 2

The NLC is back! Competitive League of Legends returned to the UK, Ireland and Nordics this evening as the first Division 1 Spring 2022 games kicked off.

After a long off-season, which got the NLC community talking, saw prizing revealed and the NLC 2022 casters announced, Megalodontus rounds up all the teams and players in NLC Division 1 and 2. You can also see the day 1 results here.

NLC Division 1 teams and rosters

After Freaks 4U Gaming took on NLC organising duties from DreamHack, it ran a calibration tournament to determine which ten teams would reach Division 1, which has a single group.

Many teams from last summer have gone, notably Fnatic Rising, Godsent, Galaxy Racer, KOVA Esports, Nordavind (now 00 Nation), Tricked Esport (NLC summer champions), Resolve and Granit Gaming. However, some newcomers have joined, like X7 and Astralis Talent.

The NLC also recently announced Kit Kat will be returning as an official partner of the ERL.
