Western Wolves was a professional multigaming team based in the BeNeLux. Western Wolves was formed in January 2012 after a decision to split foreign squads from LowLandLions, with LLL now fully focusing on their Benelux based teams, changing the working language to Dutch and Western Wolves fielding LLL's former foreign squads & players.[1]

Western Wolves fielded teams in StarCraft 2, FIFA, Halo, Counter-Strike as well as a Street Fighter IV squad that included 2012 EVO world champion Lee Seon-Woo (Inflitration).[2]

Western Wolves announced that it would be disbanding on the 31st of December 2013.[3]
