Riot Games has quietly confirmed that the tenth team in the 2017 NA LCS Spring Split will be known as FlyQuest.

In a post detailing Riot's NA LCS schedule, they slipped FlyQuest into the list of teams competing in the upcoming split. FlyQuest will be taking Cloud9 Challenger's spot in the league, after Cloud9 confirmed the departure of C9C earlier this week.

The name FlyQuest initially came up in reports from ESPN's Jacob Wolf, who reported that Milwaukee Bucks co-owner Wesley Edens and the Fortress Gaming Investment Group were in talks to purchase C9C.

The team will feature former Cloud9 players Hai "Hai" Lam, An "Balls" Le, and Daerek "LemonNation" Hart and C9C AD carry Johnny "Altec" Ru.

The 2016 NA LCS Spring Split kicks off on Jan. 20, and the full schedule will be released on Jan. 9.
