UPDATE: Check the stream back here
Our celebration stream kicks off at 8pm BST on Thursday October 15th – and you’re invited. Esports News UK editor Dom Sacco runs through what you can expect to see.
5 years ago, I went to Wembley to cover the League of Legends World Championship quarter finals – and Esports News UK was born.
I had been covering some of the ESL UK & Ireland Premiership for a month or so beforehand, but it was part of my old games blog. Going to Worlds inspired me to make that transition into a news site, including interviews, match reports and more, to attempt to cover the UK esports scene properly.
This month, the site turns 5 years old. I don’t know where the time has gone honestly. We’ve had a lot of ups and downs in that time but it’s been a lot of fun overall, and I hope me launching the site has given you a useful resource and a place to track UK esports history.
To celebrate the five-year milestone, I’ll be joined with some members of team ENUK – past and present – to look back on some memes, memories and more from the site and UK esports over the past five years.
The stream should be a relaxed place to chill out and reminisce on days gone by.
Everyone’s welcome and you’re encouraged to ask questions on stream, we’ll do our best to answer them.
Join Dom, David Holly and others on stream this Thursday from 8pm BST at twitch.tv/esportsnewsuk. We hope to see you there!
