Today CLG is proud to announce the official addition of it's second North American League of Legends team, CLG Black!
The primary reasoning behind the creation of the CLG Black team was to give the other CLG.NA roster (which will be referred to as CLG Prime moving forward) a set of highly skilled opponents to scrim and practice new strategies against on a daily basis. The team spent several weeks considering a wide array of reputable high ELO players who not only showed an ability to carry their team's in games, but also the potential to be trained and groomed from high ELO superstars, into a tournament level players.
While initially our new squad will not be sent to all major tournaments, CLG is planning on investing heavily in the development and potential of its new team. Once the both teams feel our new group is ready, you can expect not only a new team on the scene competing as a serious contender to win major tournaments, but an even more practiced and ultimately formidable CLG Prime squad. CLG Black will be making their first LAN tournament appearance at the GIGABYTE Esports LAN (GESL) in Pomona, California, June 15th-17th.
That being said, please welcome our new team to the community!

CLG Black also wanted to share the following statement with the community regarding their recent acquisitions.
"We are all honored and to be able to play under the CLG name. We're all well seasoned players who have put a lot of effort into League of Legends. While many would say we've already accomplished a great deal already as individuals, our inclusions in CLG Black is something else altogether. It's not only rewarding, but brings a great sense of pride to be recognized for our individual efforts in solo queue and be brought together under the CLG banner. The organization has given us an immense opportunity, and we plan to give this team our all in terms of dedication and a rigorous practice schedule with CLG Prime. We feel that we are going to become a very strong contender in the competitive scene. Expect us."
