League of Legends' club system allows players to form persistent groups of like-minded players, and ensure there's always plenty of people around to form a group with, rather than heading into the often choppier waters of the solo queue.
Not only does the club system provide you with a ready source of teammates, you can also fight together under one identity, and maintain social interaction in group chat. It's a very welcome feature for the game, and we recommend everyone tries to track down a friendly club once they've got to grips with the basics of League play.
To that end we've put together a handy guide to the club system in League of Legends, one which should contain everything you need to know about both joining and running an in-game club - if you're so inclined.
If there's anything else you think we should add to this article, let us know in the comments and will add it in during the next update.
How do I join a club in League of Legends?
There are lots of opportunities to find a new club of like-minded players. The best starting point for any newcomer though is the official League of Legends recruitment forum.
Note that in order to join a club you'll first of all have to be nominated by a Member of that club. Your application will then have to be approved by the Club Owner or an Officer before you can join (see the section on club roles further down the page).
How do I create a club in League of Legends?
To create a club, simply fire up the game launcher and then click on the tab at the top marked Profile.
You'll notice a button at the bottom of the screen titled Create Club. Click on it and then create a unique name for your club before confirming you want to put the club live.
There is a 25 character limit to club names in the game, and as with Summoner profiles the title cannot include any profanity.
Although you can join up to three clubs, you are only allowed to be the owner of one single club at any given time.
Club membership is also limited to 100 players at the the time of publishing this article.

What roles are available in League of Legends clubs?
Each member of a club is designated a role, which provides them with various abilities:
Club Owners can add new members and also kick players out of the club. They can also promote club members to the Officer or Member roles (see below), create a club tag and also edit and update the message of the day.
Officers are able to add - or remove - nominated Members and also set the message of the day.
Members can nominate other players to join the club in question, but they cannot admit them directly. This action must always be approved by a Club Owner or an Officer.
How do I create a club tag in League of Legends?
Having created your club, you won't be able to set a club tag until you've recruited five members to join your ranks.
Check out the resources we've posted above to advertise your new club and get your first handful of members on-board.
Once you've increased the number of players in your club, you can create a 2-5 character club tag which will appear next to your Summoner name. This is visible by other players throughout the League of Legends interface.
How do I leave a League of Legends club?
If you decide you no longer want to be a member of your current club, simply navigate to the club page, select the cog icon in the top right-hand corner of the club options menu, and then choose Leave Club.
How do I change my club tag?
If you own a club and want to change your tag, the bad news is that you can't - not at the time of publishing this article, at least.
If you're really determined to make the change though, all you can really do is kick everyone out of the existing club, delete it, and then create a new club and invite all of your friends back. You can then change the club tag to something you'd prefer.
How do I transfer ownership of my club?
Had enough of running your club? If you want to shake off some of the responsibility that comes with running a club, it's possible to transfer your duties over to another club member.
From within the club membership interface, select the player you'd rather was in charge, then select the option "Transfer Ownership". Click the confirm button and they'll be in charge of running the show from that moment on.
