The community has just discovered that iG’s new uniform has become “empty”, iG is really lacking in funding when one by one the sponsors turn away.
After a stressful transfer period, the 2022 LPL Spring Split is ready to kick off. Currently, all the teams have “closed” their official lineups, in which iG is definitely the most regrettable case when the 2018 World Championship squad has officially disbanded. This is something that has been predicted by the fans, in the past many seasons iG has not had a good performance, along with the problems surrounding the cost of maintaining the team.
Despite parting with the “pillars”, iG is still determined to maintain the team and wants to rebuild it all from the new, younger lineup. However, this is not easy when the LPL becomes more and more competitive, especially many eSports organizations are “spending money” to build a better quality squad.
Most recently, iG officially announced the team’s new shirt, immediately the community noticed something unusual in this new shirt. Specifically, iG’s previous sponsor logo has almost disappeared, leaving only one sponsor in front, the famous Huya live broadcast channel in China. At the same time, on the chest of the iG uniform is always the star symbolizing their 2018 World Championship.
This is a sign that the main sponsors of iG last year have turned their backs on the team. Now iG has very few sponsors, and among them, there are still sponsors waiting for the expiration of the contract to be able to leave.
Compared to last year’s shirt, it can be said that iG’s new shirt this time is really “clean”. Many people even joked that this is probably the simplest shirt among the teams in this year’s LPL.
Since parting with veteran players like TheShy, Rookie, etc. Invictus Gaming has lost a lot of fans. Since then, the sponsors have also in turn terminated the contract with the team. In this situation, iG is really facing a lot of financial difficulties, especially when the owner Vuong Tu Thong is no longer interested in the team.
Information about the LPL will be updated, so stay tuned for more.
