Misfits Academy and Fnatic Academy teams reach the EU LCS

Misfits' and Fnatic's Academy League of legends teams have qualified for the EU LCS.

Misfits beat Fnatic Academy 3-2 on Thursday April 13th to secure their place in the next split of the LCS.

And today (Saturday April 14th), Fnatic Academy beat Giants Gaming 3-0 to qualify.

This means that former LCS teams Giants Gaming and Origen will fall into the Challenger Series for the summer split 2017.

Both Misfits and Fnatic will now have to sell their academy team spots to other owners, as their main teams are already in the LCS, and Riot doesn't allow an owner to have more than one team in the competition.

Both teams are obviously delighted with the win. Selling their spots should easily earn them around $1m each.

Before they made it to the LCS last year, Misfits originally qualified for the Challenger Series from the ESL UK & Ireland Premiership (playing as the Renegades Banditos). Their French ADC at the time, Yuuki60, who played with them in the UK scene, is now in Misfits' academy side.

Misfits owner Ben Spoont thanked the team - and former manager Alicus - for reaching the LCS.
