Th3Antonio and Juhan join Jackies, Patrik, and Ignar to GIANTX Summer 2024 LEC roster

The Following was sent to Inven Global via press release.


The esports club GIANTX kicks off the third season of the year in Berlin for the League of Legends EMEA Championship (LEC), Europe’s most important professional video game competition. The LEC returns, and with it, a GIANTX that is pushing its limits to qualify for Worlds, the global championship of Riot Games’ video game. The GIANTX LEC roster introduces changes to reach its ambitions of getting to Worlds. Th3Antonio and Juhan are the fresh faces in the team alongside Jackies, Patrik, and Ignar. GIANTX will face Team Heretics in the summer split’s opening match this Saturday, June 8th at 17:00.

The promotion of the toplaner Antonio Espinosa ‘Th3Antonio’ (Spain, 1999), a symbol of the club who has won four LVP Super Leagues, had already been announced weeks ago. Joining Th3Antonio is the newcomer jungler Lee Ju-han ‘Juhan’ (South Korea, 2001), who joins the LEC team after an unforgettable month with the team competing in the Spanish league. Juhan was instrumental in a GIANTX comeback that fell just short of the Superliga final. Juhan knows what it means to be a world champion: he was part of the DRX team that won at the 2022 Worlds.

The rest of the roster includes the young Adam Jeřábek 'Jackies' (Czech Republic, 2004), who continues in the 'midlane'; the veteran of GIANTX’s LEC team and the most experienced; Patrik Jírů 'Patrik' (Czech Republic, 2000) remains as the ADC and is accompanied in the 'botlane' as 'support' by an international LoL stalwart, Lee Dong-geun 'Ignar' (South Korea, 1996). The Belgian Christophe van Oudheusden 'Kaas' leads the team as Coach. Nicolas Perez ‘Nico’, the ex coach of the Superliga team, also joins him as an assistant coach.

The winner of the LEC summer split secures a ticket to ‘Worlds’, the League of Legends World Championship, which this year takes place in the United Kingdom, Germany, and France. After falling short in the first round of ‘playoffs’ in both Winter and Spring, GIANTX must secure at least a top-three finish to enter the ‘season finals’ and fight for a spot for the World Championship.

GIANTX is part of the LEC championship alongside G2 Esports, winter and spring champion, MAD Lions KOI, Team Heretics, Fnatic, Karmine Corp, Rogue, SK Gaming, Team BDS, and Team Vitality. The match on Saturday is followed by another against Fnatic (Sunday, June 9th at 19:15 CEST) and SK (Monday, June 10th at 17:45 CEST).
