Here are the rosters for the NA LCS 2016 Summer Split

Three new teams, a bunch of new faces and a strong group of contenders at the top.

Riot Games

This week marks the start of the North American League of Legends season, with a finals rematch of Team SoloMid vs. Counter Logic Gaming kicking things off Friday. We had to wait until this week for the finalized NA LCS rosters, as a competitive ruling by Riot banned both Renegades and Team Impulse from competitive play, forcing the teams to sell their spots.

Buyers have been found, which means there are three new teams in the NA LCS this split: Apex Gaming, which qualified through the Challenger Series; Team Envy, which purchased Renegades' spot and three of its players; and Phoenix1, which purchased Team Impulse's spot and three of its players.

The new teams weren't the only transactions between splits: Cloud9 made a big move by signing former world champion top laner Jung "Impact" Eon-yeong, NRG signed a group of LCS veterans and TSM has a new starting support.

Here are the full rosters for the upcoming NA LCS split (schedule here), with all transactions listed. For the EU rosters, click here.
