YouTube star Jimmy 'MrBeast' Donaldson has shown interest in entering the North American Challengers League (NACL) as his first venture into League of Legends esports
MrBeast, along with other content creators, has reportedly expressed interest in joining the NACL, according to Sander Hove of The Game Haus, who provides updates on the North American League of Legends scene.
While MrBeast has previously shown interest in League of Legends esports, this marks his first interest at the NACL level.
During a guest appearance on the Worlds 2022 broadcast, MrBeast stated his intention to purchase a slot in the LCS (League of Legends Championship Series).
His goal is to have a team that reaches a stage like the World Championship.
100 Thieves player Yiliang 'Doublelift' Peng, a prominent League of Legends player, expressed that MrBeast entering the LCS would be beneficial for the league, which is dealing with declining viewership.
When TSM (Team SoloMid) announced the sale of their LCS slot, MrBeast was considered a potential buyer.
However, recent reports suggest that TSM is in discussions with other entities primarily from the media and traditional sports industries.
MrBeast's involvement in the NACL or LCS could bring attention and potential growth to League of Legends esports.
