G2 announced the partnership with Spanish organisation Arctic Gaming in a special video, which follows their past League Of Legends academy team G2 Heretics.
Along with being backed by G2, the new team’s main sponsor comes from Chips Ahoy! - which marks the first time the Mondelez Group Brand has made a sponsorship deal in esports.
The actual roster for G2 Arctic is yet to be announced, although it’ll most likely be revealed soon if they want a fighting chance in Superliga.
You can check out the announcement video below.

G2’s previous academy team G2 Heretics comprised of players Leon "Lamabear" Kruger, Robert "Gavan" Brannstrom, David Carbo "Skain" Ferrer and more, before they were disbanded on 13 December 2019.
On the main G2 League Of Legends team, players Rasmus "Caps" Winther and Luka "Perkz" Perkovic teased last month a possible role swap for the 2020 LEC Spring Split.
While it’s yet to be confirmed, the switch would mean Caps would become Bot Laner while Perkz would switch back to Mid Laner – after he previously changed roles when Caps joined G2 from Fnatic in 2018.
