On Jan. 30, the organization revealed its League of Legends roster for the 2020 Spring season of the UK League Championship (UKLC). The UK national league will feature a total of 8 competing teams, including the British teams of both Fnatic and Excel Esports.

MnM Gaming’s League of Legends roster
Jungler Sofiane “Sof” Saibi headlines the roster. Sof was previously the jungler of a different UKLC team, Phelan Gaming. However, he now has the opportunity to compete alongside the new roster of MnM Gaming. Sof competed in the UKLC throughout all of 2019 and has shown a steady improvement in his performance.
Another player joining from the Phelan Gaming team is Ronan “Chemera” Stewart. Chemera was the starting mid laner for the organization since May 2019. With the Mid-jungle duo being one of the most vital aspects of a League of Legends team, having this duo continue on a new roster is a promising sign for the team’s future.
The last player joining MnM from the former Phelan Gaming team is bot laner Nicolaj “Achuu” Ellesgaard. Achuu was previously known under the name “Achuu Çöp” during his time with Turkish League of Legends team Supermassive. He is by far the most experienced player on the roster. Achuu has competed in the amateur and professional scene since 2014 on organizations such as Team Kinguin, Supermassive, and GG Esport.
New to the UKLC is support player Oleksandr “Efias” Yankovich. While this will be Efias’ first season in the UKLC, he has competed in many other regions. He is best known for his time competing in the Italian national league, the PG Nationals Vigorsol. Efias and his team managed to win the PGNV 2019 Summer Playoffs, and this victory earned them the chance to compete at the European Masters 2019 Summer Main event. The international stage proved too much for the young roster, however, as they failed to make it to the top 8 of the event.
International success for Mumus100
Completing the new MnM roster is none other than top laner Szépvölgyi “Mumus100” Márió. Mumus100 has had a long career in the amateur League of Legends scene. However, he recently received the opportunity to play on Brazilian team Vivo Keyd. That Brazilian roster managed to win the regular season of the Brazillian Challenger Circuit 2019. In addition to this, the team won their split one promotion series against the CNB esports club.
This victory qualified the organization into the CBLOL, a league that is best comparable to the LCS for Brazil. Shortly after the qualification, however, both Mumus100 and the team’s coach Luqman “Crowe” Abdullah were released from the team. Now, it seems Mumus100 will have a new chance with the game with MnM Gaming.
Hoje nos despedimos de duas pessoas que fizeram parte da nossa equipe nesse último split.
Agradecemos por todo empenho e dedicação no tempo em que estivemos juntos, @ghostnomore e @mumus100.
Thank you! Köszönjük! 💜 pic.twitter.com/vI6JBotHhj
