Golden Guardians is an American esports organization founded by NBA team Golden State Warriors.

History[edit]

Golden Guardians is a franchised NA LCS organization, created by the Golden State Warriors. After placing 10th twice in their debut year, the team restructured and has gone on a stable climb to make playoffs 3 times since then. In December 2019, the team rebranded, removed the blue from their branding and changed their logo to the one we know today.
