Every year, our Singapore Campus League (SGCL) A Division champions are given a chance to qualify for the League of Legends International College Cup (LICC), in hopes to compete abroad against international collegiate teams.
After their well deserved SGCL win on July 1st 2017, NYP (Nanyang Polytechnic) went on an undefeated streak against other SEA teams for the LICC SEA qualifiers. As the top seed for the SEA region, NYP along with NTU (Nha Trang University) from Vietnam will be representing us for the 2017 LICC and test their mettle in Wu Han, China!
