UK League of Legends YouTuber and streamer Dan “Foxdrop” Wyatt will be colour casting next week’s ESL UK and Ireland Premiership matches.
He will be casting alongside ESL UK regular Joe “Munchables” Fenny in ESL’s Leicester studio for special one-off coverage of Wednesday night’s games.
Foxdrop is a well-known League of Legends content creator with 550,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel and almost 130,000 followers on Twitch.
He posts regular guide and commentary videos with the tagline ‘Be a better League player’, and mainly plays as a jungler. As well as being informative, Foxy also has a wicked and wacky sense of humour, and his dog Shad often appears in his videos too.
Foxdrop told Esports News UK: “I’m looking forward to casting the games – it’s a bit different from what I normally do, but there’s also enough overlap that I feel confident in my ability to contribute.
“I’ve really wanted to get involved in the UK scene more. I’m just hoping Twitch chat is nice to me. But it’s the internet, so I expect nothing less than the most positive comments and constructive yet reassuring criticism!”
“I’ve really wanted to get involved in the UK scene more recently – as one of the larger members of the UK League community I feel like I’m in a good position to help grow the scene. At the end of the day I’m just a guy from Essex who’s passionate about League.
“I’m just hoping Twitch chat is nice to me. But it’s the internet, so I expect nothing less than the most positive comments and constructive yet reassuring criticism.”
Teams in the ESL Premiership this split include Team Xenex, Excel, Bulldog, GLB, Team Paria, Enclave Gaming, MnM Gaming and Cyclone.
