NRG eSports was formed after aquiring the NA LCS Spot of Team Coast in November 2015 to participate in 2016 NA LCS Spring and Summer Splits until getting relegated to Challenger Series in 2017 NA LCS Spring Promotion tournament. Following the relegation NRG eSports disbanded their League of Legends roster in August 2016.

History

NRG eSports was formed when the co-owners for the Sacramento Kings, an American NBA team, purchased Team Coast's NA LCS spot for Spring of 2016. NRG had a rough and inconsistent spring split however, finishing 5th in the regular season with a 9-9 record. In the playoffs, they lost in a 0-3 sweep to Team Liquid and finished 5th-6th.

On August 7th 2016, in the last round of the 2017 Spring Promotion Tournament, NRG lost to Echo Fox in a 0-3 sweep and was relegated to the NA Challenger Series.

On August 11th 2016, following relegation from the North American League Championship Series, NRG Esports has terminated its contracts with its entire League of Legends lineup, making each member free agents for the upcoming season.
