Yesterday we reported that all of the teams for the North American League of Legends Championship Series had been confirmed, including 100 Thieves, and now team owner Matthew 'Nadeshot' Haag has posted a video talking about the involvement with the league.
In the video Nadeshot confirms that 100 Thieves received a multi-million dollar investment from the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Dan Gilbert.
"We are going to be hyper focused on esports. We are going to be hyper focused on content creation, and we're going to be hyper focused on the apparel still," he said (as reported by Dot Esports).
He also confirmed that they have a League of Legends team for the 2018 LCS season, the first esports title that 100 Thieves will participate in. "Right now, we are in the process of building our roster, building our team, and I think you guys are going to be really excited about the pieces we're putting together."
Keen to dismiss any doubt League of Legends fans may have about the new organisation, Nadeshot stated: "We're going to prove to you guys that we're here for the right reasons." Do you think they can do well in the league though?
