League of Legends developer Riot Games has announced that Galatasaray Esports has been banned from competing in the Turkish Championship League for the Winter Split 2020 because the organization has not paid players and staff.

Players who competed for Galatasaray Esports in the 2019 season said they had not been paid for months, with the organization helping to promise payment until the end of the contact.

Lee “GBM” Chang-seok, half laner of the team, tweeted the problem in early December, claiming that he had to pay several months’ salary. He later revealed in an interview with Inven Global that other team members owed money, some up to eight months’ salary.

Riot Games opened an investigation into the matter after it was made public and has now reached its conclusion. The result is that the Galatasaray Esports organization is banned from competition in the Turkish division’s winter division and all player and manager contracts for the 2020 season can be terminated.

Furthermore, there is no guarantee that Galatasaray Esports will return to the competition for the summer division. A review of their eligibility to play in the second half of the 2020 season will take place later. If they face the situation and follow Riot’s guidelines, they can be admitted to the competition, otherwise there is the possibility that they will be definitively banned from the Turkish Championship League.

With the ban so close to the start of the 2020 season, the Turkish Championship League will run with nine teams instead of 10 for the winter division. This will presumably mean that some changes are the schedule and format of the league, although exact details have yet to be revealed.

The Esports Galatasaray were one of the best teams in the Turkish Championship League during the 2019 season. In both the winter and summer divisions they finished third / fourth, losing in the semifinals of the playoffs of both. They were consistently among the best performing teams in the region and generally had a good year. However, problems with payments indicate that the organization will not have a chance to repeat that success, and it also means that players will likely be reluctant to sign up for the organization in the future, should it be allowed to re-enter the competition.

As a region, the Turkish League has improved in recent years, with Royal Youth, the only Turkish representative at this year’s World Championships, putting on an impressive performance in the Play In phase and almost reaching the main phase of the group. However, problems like this will have to be eliminated from the league if he wishes to continue growing.
