SK Telecom T1 is a Korean progaming team. It was a StarCraft team until 2012, when KeSPA switched to StarCraft II. It now has a StarCraft II and a League of Legends teams.


SK Telecom Team 1 was originally founded by BoxeR in October 2002 under the name Orion. Its name changed to 4 Union in December 2003, and finally to SK Telecom T1 in April 2004 upon sponsorship by SK Telecom. On May 2012, the team was introduced to StarCraft II through the hybrid 2011-2012 Proleague Season 2.


SK Telecom T1 is commonly abbreviated as SKT T1. It has had a historically strong Terran lineup, boasting two bonjwas, Boxer and iloveoov. SKT's lineup has included such notable players as GoRush, Midas, IntoTheRainbow, Kingdom, and Canata. SKT was very successful in its early years, peaking in 2005 as they earned the Triple Crown (victories in PL R1, R2 and Grand Finals), but began to decline when Boxer left for the Air Force. Coach Hoon tried his best to combat this decline, including introducing a "one-league-only" rule for the SKT players, but was eventually fired for poor results. He was replaced by Coach Park and three race-specific coaches, iloveoov, Kingdom and MuMyung. This, coupled with Boxer's return, has been believed to be the cause of SKT's resurgence in 2008, and the team continues a force in both Proleague and individual leagues. SKT did not allow its players to compete in the GOM TV Classic Season 3. Current notable players include Bisu, BeSt, and Fantasy. Though SKT's weak Zerg lineup has long been an object of ridicule, their recent addition of a new Zerg coach has brought about improvement to their Zerg roster.


  • SKT also has a Special Forces team in addition to their StarCraft team.


SK Telecom is a mobile telecommunications operator in South Korea that is a part of the SK Group, one of South Korea's largest conglomerates.
