Once again – further proof that the UK is home to some top casting talent in esports.
Not one, not two, not three, but four British casters have formed part of the Intel Extreme Masters (IEM) League of Legends World Championship broadcast.
They are as follows:
- Joe “Munchables” Fenny (commentator, pictured far left)
- Ceirnan “Excoundrel” Lowe (desk host, pictured second from left)
- Derry “Dezachu” Holt (Facebook Live host, second from right)
- Andy “Vedius” Day (commentator, far right)
They are joined by stage host OJ Borg, casters Alberto “Crumbzz” Rengifo, Daniel Drakos, Devin “PiraTechnics” Younge, Indiana “Froskurrin” Black, Chris “Papasmithy” Smith and reporter Mitch “Uber” Lesie.

The League of Legends IEM tournament will take place at the Spodek Arena in Katowice, Poland, on February 25th to 26th.
Eight teams will compete for a share of the $150,000 prize pool and the IEM trophy.
Last year SKT beat Fnatic 3-0 in the final at IEM Katowice.
Intel told Esports News UK last year they were considering bringing IEM to the UK, though no further announcements have been made whether they actually will or not.
