Twitch star Ibai and football legend Girard Pique unveiled their new FINETWORK KOI esports organization complete with branding and jerseys ahead of its League of Legends debut.

The two new org owners held a massive event in Barcelona, Spain on December 15 in front of 12,000 attendees to reveal their new Superliga LoL team as well as their army of content creators.

The Purple-and-Black scheme will make up everything KOI with its primary sponsors FI Network, Disney+, and Cupra.

Throughout the reveal, Ibai and Pique weren’t shy of their desire to directly compete with Karmine Corp, the French LFL team that’s famous for its intense fandom.
