NA Legends Invitational teams will contain players from the LCS and North American Challengers League, North America’s tier-two competition. League of Legends streamers will also compete in the teams. In addition to the prize money, the winners will receive a pair of custom gauntlets engraved with their names.

Four teams will compete in the tournament, commencing September 16th-17th. Each team will be captained by Zachary ‘Sneaky Scuderi, Hammoudi ‘Yassuo’ Abdarlrhman, William ‘Scarra’ Li, and Zaqueri ‘Aphromoo’ Black.

The NA Invitational will be broadcast on Disguised Toast’s Twitch channel, which boasts over 2.8m followers.

The content creator is no stranger to esports. In 2022, Disguised Toast founded Disguised, an esports organisation competing in League of Legends and VALORANT. In June 2023, the content creator launched a Patreon to support the organisation financially.

Alongside announcing various collaborations, Riot Games appointed a new Head of League of Legends Esports for the Americas this month. Moreover, the company moved its Worlds Qualifying Series to South Korea ahead of the season-ending World Championship.

Zack Elliot, Riot Games Director of the NACL, spoke on the collaboration: “It’s been incredible to work with Disguised Toast over the last few months.

“Between the showmatch and the success of Disguised in the NACL split, we’ve seen community support, passionate fandom, and, simply, some really fun League of Legends matches. We’re excited for this upcoming tournament and to continue the crossover between content creators and League esports.”
