Could Alicus sign Misfits’ academy team?

Rumours yesterday suggested that Misfits' former general manager Ali "Alicus" Saba may be buying the academy team of either Misfits or Fnatic.

Alicus left Misfits earlier this year, citing burnout.

He returned in March with his own org called Laser Kittenz.

Dot Esports reports that Laser Kittenz has submitted bids for both Fnatic and Misfits' LCS spots.

Esports News UK reached out to Ali who wouldn't confirm nor deny whether either of the bids have been accepted.

ESPN also reports that Ninjas in Pyjamas is attempting to buy Fnatic's Academy spot for 'about $500,000' - a figure below the usual millions that are touted for an LCS spot.

Misfits and Fnatic academy teams qualified for the LCS last month. As both orgs already have a main League of Legends roster in the EU LCS, they will both need to sell their academy team spots.

A decision will likely be made in the next few days.
