Lionscreed Joins Rising Stars with an All-Female Team.
We are proud to announce that Lionscreed is expanding once more. Maintaining a drive to create an inclusive environment for all gamers, the organisation welcomes our first all-female League of Legends team!
These incredibly talented athletes will make their professional debut in the Rising Stars tournament on the 26th and 27th of November.
We hope you will be with us to support them.
Rising Stars is an international women-only League of Legends tournament created to promote greater diversity and inclusion in esports. The tournament will be broadcast live by NUEL and has an exciting £3,000 prize pool. With many great organisations and players involved.
Those who have been following Lionscreed’s journey will recognise one of the names on our all-female roster: we will be welcoming Tabitha “Tabby” Cole back to the organisation! After spending time on our professional League of Legends team as a Support, Tabby is returning to her Support role for Rising Stars. She will be joined by Lisa (Top) from the Netherlands, Ender (Mid) from France, Sea (Jungle) from Slovakia, and Stratospanda (ADC) from Norway. Overall, we will celebrate an incredibly diverse pool of talent from across the continent, working together to bring success home to Lionscreed. With amazing coaches: Mirai and sinine we have no doubts of bringing home the win.
Women’s esports has long been critically underfunded. At Lionscreed, we are excited to see event organisers and professional teams embracing new steps in creating a better environment for female gamers.
Tabby offered the following insight into what this means to the female professional esports community:
“I’m glad that we are now getting more Riot-endorsed tournaments for women in esports, as it can potentially encourage more ladies to start playing competitively. However, I still think women should also be aiming to play in both mixed and female tournaments.”
On her return to Lionscreed, she says:
“For me, I’m very happy to be back at Lionscreed for this project! I am thrilled to be bringing some new (and familiar) faces to the scene!”
Lionscreed hopes that our community will give a warm welcome to our amazing new team. Tune in on the 26th and 27th to watch them play at the Rising Stars Tournament – we wish them the absolute best and will be supporting them every step of the way!
