"Cloud9 is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of what's possible in esports, and working with Kia allows us to do just that thanks to a mutual commitment to innovation, performance, and continuous improvement," said Jack Etienne, co-founder and CEO of Cloud9. "Kia shares our vision for innovation and excellence, and we are thrilled to explore the opportunities this sponsorship will bring to our fans and the esports community."

Kia is sponsoring with Cloud9 to empower its League Championship Series (LCS) team.

Cloud9 is excited to officially commence its sponsorship with Kia, proudly showcasing their presence on the global stage at Worlds this year. This collaboration will support Cloud9’s League of Legends team, with a focus on creating unique content, engaging fan experiences, and exploring the intersection of technology, gaming, and automotive innovation.

Fans can look forward to exciting Kia sweepstakes, behind-the-scenes looks at how the Cloud9 team prepares for the world’s largest League of Legends competition, and in-depth opportunities to meet the players and understand how they work. This sponsorship represents a new chapter for Cloud9 and Kia as they embark on this journey together.
