The Dire Wolves are the League of Legends OPL Split 2 2017 champions

The Dire Wolves emerged victorious in the 2017 Split 2 Champions of the League of Legends Oceanic Pro League (OPL) last weekend.

The best of 5 final went 4 games; the Dire Wolves finished up 3 – 1 against Chiefs Esports.

“Chiefs pushed us in the grand final as they have been doing all year. We’ve had to work hard but it will hopefully mean we are able to now do Oceania proud at Worlds,” said Curtis ‘Sharp’ Morgan, coach of the Dire Wolves.

“Dire Wolves and Chiefs have been two of the OPL’s heavyweight teams over the past couple of years. It was an epically, strategic final and we’re excited to see what Dire Wolves can do at Worlds in China,” added Daniel Ringland, Head of Esports at Riot Games Oceania.

The Dire Wolves will now fly to Wuhan, China, to represent Oceania in the Play-In Stage at Worlds. The event is held over 23-29 September.
