Esports organization G2 Esports has revealed its collaboration with Warner Bros. and DC Comics to release a line of DCxG2 apparel that begins with the Joker-themed G2 MSI Jersey.

What’s the G2 MSI Jersey?

The G2 MSI Jersey will see G2 Esports’ League of Legends team don the Joker-themed exclusive jersey during the League of Legends Midseason Invitational 2023 in London. The G2 MSI jersey features themes from the popular DC Comics villain Joker by playing off of the black and purple aesthetics that have become synonymous with Batman’s nemesis. Apart from the color scheme, the graffiti-like text of the Joker’s signature laugh decorates the right-hand side of the G2 MSI jersey to complete the first product of the DCxG2 line.

“At G2, we love nothing more than great storytelling and always had a lot of admiration for the DC Comics universe,” G2 Esports CEO Alban Dechelotte stated in the official press release. “For this MSI World Championship, the Joker character felt natural to take the competition by storm with our unexpected drafts. We can't wait for the G2 Army to see what we have got planned for them.”

The new G2 MSI Jersey is a nice play on the League of Legends team's moniker as LEC villains, which makes the G2 Joker Jersey a natural fit with MSI 2023 starting in one week.

What else to expect with DCxG2 limited-edition apparel?

However, those that aren’t the biggest fans of the Joker, but are hoping to see other popular DC Comics characters are in luck. The DCxG2 partnership will feature a number of different clothing drops depicting other popular characters over the course of this partnership.

“The cooperation with G2 Esports is very exciting for us. Our world-renowned DC superheroes are a perfect match for the heroes of G2 Esports,” Warner Bros. VP of Consumer Products Stefan Hausberg noted. “We are looking forward to an amazing launch of prestige jerseys with The Joker and more for the upcoming esports tournaments.”

So while the G2 Joker jersey may the first set of clothing in this partnership, it will certainly not be the last. That being said, those interested in purchasing the G2 Joker jersey can do so through the G2 Esports shop.

Fans of G2 Esports will be able to watch the League of Legends team don the G2 Joker jersey on stage during MSI 2023 starting May 2, 2023. There, G2 Esports will take on CBLOL’s LOUD in their opening matchup at 8am PT as the LEC second seed looks to qualify for the next stage.

Should the G2 MSI Jersey bring them luck, G2 Esports will then move forward into the Stage 2 Bracket, where eight teams will compete. That portion of MSI 2023 will begin on May 9, 2023.

All the matches will be played on League of Legends Patch 13.8, better known as the MSI Update.
