Team Liquid is a multi-regional professional esports organization based in the Netherlands that was founded in 2000. This entity has its origins as a Battle.net clan and StarCraft community site, and over the years it has grown into a multifaceted global company with a wide reach in the industry. With the release of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, Team Liquid signed their first professional players.
In 2012, Team Liquid recruited a North American Dota 2 team, marking their first venture into multi-genre management. In January 2015, Team Liquid officially merged with Team Curse under the Liquid banner, bringing on Steve Arhancet, his supporting staff, and former Curse League of Legends, Street Fighter, and Super Smash Bros. teams. Their European Dota 2 squad won The International 2017, which had one of the largest prize pool for any esports tournament in history. Team Liquid's League of Legends team has won four LCS titles.
