In terms of national teams, O Gaming will represent France, the LVP to Spain, Freaks 4U Gaming to Germany, PG Esports to Italy and Frenzy to Poland. All of them are partners with Riot Games in the respective countries and are directly involved in the management of the regional leagues, which are, together with the Uk, the most important of the continent.
