G2 revealed its 2021 uniform on January 15 and fans were more than ready to buy it. The website crashed in the first minutes of the launch, forcing fans to wait in line.

Esports fans anticipate G2 Kit Jersey despite steep price

The new jersey is a collaboration between G2 and its newest sponsor, the Adidas sports brand. The jersey is black with white and red stripes across the chest. It includes the logos of the sponsors on both shoulders. Fans will find a special surprise on the tag, a photo of owner Carlos “Ocelote” Rodríguez. It is not possible to customize a jersey with a specific name tag.

Each jersey cost €80, roughly $96 USD, making it one of the most expensive jerseys in sports.

Five hours after the launch, over 100,000 people visited the G2 site. It’s not clear how the team sold the units during this time, but those numbers solidify G2 as one of the most popular sports brands in the world. 

Better known to the League of Legends and the CSGO team, the G2 has teams competing in almost every title with a competitive scene.

2021 is set to be yet another successful G2 team. In the weeks leading up to the start of the 2021 LEC Spring Split, G2 is already the favorite to win the title. In the offseason, the team signed Martin “Rekkles” Larsson, one of the biggest roster moves of the year. With Rekkles in its ranks, G2 should feel at ease enough to start a new season.

G2 Esports will debut their new jerseys on January 22, where they will face MAD Lions in the opening game of the split.

Who’s competing in the LEC?

There are 10 teams competing in the 2021 Spring LEC split. The teams are as follows:

Team Vitality /  Astralis / Excel Esports / FC Schalke 04 / Fnatic /

G2 Esports / MAD Lions / Misfits Gaming / SK Gaming /  Rogue /
