“The First Avenger – and the best possible fit for TeamLiquid fans as the championship team fights for the glory of North America,” wrote Marvel Games on Twitter, while featuring an image of the Team Liquid League of Legends team in matching jerseys. “Show your support and get your own Team Liquid x Marvel Captain America jersey.”
While the League of Legends team is sporting limited edition Captain America-themed jerseys, there are also other versions available. In the YouTube video displayed above, Yiliang “Peter” Peng wears an Iron Man-themed jersey with the iconic red and gold color scheme and a “fully sublimated MK 85” inspired design.

A T-shirt is also up for purchase, featuring half of the Team Liquid logo and the other half with the Marvel logo.
