Well, now we know what Project Whirlwind was all about.


In what may be one of the largest esports partnerships of all time, Team Liquid unveiled a strategic partnership with Marvel Entertainment today when the TL League of Legends team entered the Rift Rivals tournament wearing Captain America/Team Liquid crossover jerseys.

The partnership includes exclusive crossover merchandise, available for purchase here after 1:30 PT, including:

  • TL x Marvel Captain America Jerseys
  • Team Liquid x Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame Quantum Realm Jersey
  • TL x Marvel Iron Man Jersey
  • Team Liquid x Marvel Logo Tee

 

The press release indicates that there will be more exclusive merchandise and content crossovers available throughout the length of the partnership.

This is Marvel’s first foray into a direct partnership with an esports team. The entertainment giant has had crossovers before, however, most notably in Fortnite. Their partnership with Team Liquid, however, goes beyond a limited-time event.

Team Liquid teased the mysterious Project Whirlwind on Monday, sending Twitter and the team’s subreddit into a dive of furious speculation.

While many surmised that the tweet was hinting at an upcoming rebrand or franchise announcement, it turns out that it was Marvel all along. Eagle-eyed fans may have noticed that the date in the teaser was in the trademark Marvel font. Additionally, the background itself was in-line with Marvel’s usual color scheme.

Either way, Marvel has stepped into the esports space, and it doesn’t seem like they’re leaving any time soon.
