As part of the ongoing League of Legends Pro League’s (LPL) partnership with Nike, a new collection of branded merchandise was revealed after the regional final on Sunday to celebrate the four LPL teams’ 2020 World Championship qualifications.
Players of all four teams — Top Esports, JD Gaming, Suning and LGD Gaming — walked on stage in full Nike gear with bomber jackets and white Nike shoes from their new “Good Game” series.
The bomber jacket adopts a double-sided design with the LPL iconic slogan “ALL WE FIGHT FOR” on the back. According to Nike, the colors were inspired by the official colors of the four teams that qualified, and symbolizes the spirit of LPL unity.
In addition, Nike will be releasing a new version of each team’s uniform. Using Dri-FIT material, team logos printed on the front chest are larger compared to their current 2020 designs, paired with textured backgrounds.

Highlighting the Nike x LPL Worlds collection is this limited edition Air Jordan 1, which was inspired by the Summoner’s Cup. A silver trophy with blue ornamentation, the shoe encapsulates the Cup’s shimmer and primary colors.
Officially called the Air Jordan 1 Zoom Air CMFT, the key difference between this model and a classic Air Jordan is the use of a Zoom Air cushion in the rear sole that adds even more comfort for the player.
Alongside LPL tailored merchandise, a new “Good Game” product series was unveiled. It “aims to pay tribute to the beautiful game loved by players and fans,” wrote Nike.
The “Good Game” shoes come in various designs, each with a white base with splashes of red, blue and even a rainbow Swoosh on the side. It includes t-shirts, pullovers and hoodies as well.
The bomber jackets and team uniforms will be available for sale in September in China. It is not yet known if Nike will make this special LPL Worlds collection available internationally.
