Riot Games unveils rules for partner rosters across three leagues

Riot Games has unveiled a set of rules for partner rosters in three leagues in Europe, America and Asia. According to these requirements, those teams that are represented in a particular region must field a squad of at least four players from the corresponding region.

In order to maintain the regional affiliation of partner teams, which is important to fans and sponsors, each team is required to have a minimum of four (4) players in the starting line-up throughout the season who are residents of the region they represent. For example, the USA and Brazil are part of the American League, while Germany and Nigeria are part of the European League.

The leagues will be the Americas (North America, Brazil and Latin America), EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) and the Pacific. As determined by Riot Games, countries within each of these demographic regions are defined as League territory.

This effectively means that one of the five North American organizations in the American League (Sentinels, Cloud9, 100 Thieves, NRG and Evil Geniuses) can have a full Brazilian roster if they want to. But these teams can only have one player, for example, from EMEA or the Pacific region.
