Our Mission

CLG strives to uplift our community through championship wins, unforgettable fan experiences, and pushing the boundaries of esports entertainment.

Our Values

Rise And Fall As One

We encourage challenging each other, but gain fortitude in our collective strength. Our ability to win is based upon an unshakable foundation of trust and teamwork. We see losses as an opportunity to learn and grow even closer.

Live What You Love

Our success stems from what we do. We love games. We love competition. We love to win. Our passion is our way of life.

Never Compromise Sportsmanship

We ground ourselves in respect and gratitude for our teammates and peers. We excel through inclusivity and fairness. We don’t cut others down to succeed.

Combine Intuition With Data

Knowledge is the foundation of our intuition. We live and breathe strategy so we can make fast and accurate decisions. We strive to support our instincts with data.

Question The Status Quo

We challenge assumptions and push the boundaries of player performance and community experience. We look to disrupt the landscape rather than just be a part of it. We strive to provide the absolute best in esports entertainment.


From players to staff, we are comprised of the most devoted and enthusiastic people who came to CLG with the goal of pushing the boundaries of esports and to create a thriving community around it. We are gamers, musicians, artists, content creators, athletes and foodies. We come from all over the world and from all walks of life. Most importantly, everyone here is passionate about games - from the players that compete at the highest levels to the staff that challenge each other throughout the workday. We channel that love for games to win at everything we do - together.


Counter Logic Gaming (CLG) was originally founded in 2010 by George “HotshotGG” Georgallidis as one of the first League of Legends esports teams in the world, with the vision of jumpstarting the competitive community and bringing esports to the mainstream. CLG became the hub for the League of Legends competitive discussion and spearheaded a grassroots tournament scene that ultimately culminated in CLG winning the first official League of Legends tournament at the World Cyber Games 2010.

CLG has since continued to spearhead the development of the esports landscape by continually pushing the status quo - from our coaching infrastructure, player development and nutrition, and world-class training facility. All of which have helped CLG continue its legacy as a championship team winning the LCS Summer 2015 Championship at The Madison Square Garden and the LCS Spring 2016 Championship at Mandalay Bay.

CLG partnered with the Madison Square Garden Company in 2017, further amplifying our ability to disrupt the esports landscape, create great fan experiences, and continue to win championships.
