UK League of Legends 2021 spring roster roundup: NLC, UKLC and UKEL teams and casters listed


Now that 2020 is over and a new League of Legends season has begun, it’s back to the core business at hand which is the glorious return of competitive LoL in the UK.

With the NLC’s premier system and ecosystem returning to the fold, viewers are blessed with three tiers of competition once again: the upper-tier NLC, mid-tier UKLC and lower-tier UKEL. Megalodontus gathers all the roster reveals for 2021 in one handy article.

Casters for the NLC, UKLC and UKEL

We see the return of our usual suspects plus one familiar face in Jamada, who was invited to cast the NLC Fall Open most recently.

Aux announced that he would be stepping down from casting the UKLC, which means Hiprain and Jamada will be leading the helm instead.

The UKEL has expanded its broadcast team for 2021. With familiar faces returning, the UKEL has also added Godsent head coach Jon Ellis and Guild Esports director of esports Grant Rousseau.

With the casters list finalised, all that’s left are the teams themselves.

The two groups for 2021 spring are:

UKLC teams and rosters

Due to Phelan Gaming withdrawing from the UKLC for spring the Munster late payments scandal, DreamHack opened their spot to Bulldog Esports and NerdRage, who were in the UKLC promotion tournament previously.

Bulldog Esports won in a convincing 3-0 yesterday and thus returned to the UKLC, while NerdRage remains in the UKEL.

The eight UKLC team rosters are as follows:

While many were initially skeptical, UKEL founder and ops director Alex ‘Synygy’ Winton has confirmed that Munster Rugby Gaming’s application to join the UKEL was very strong, and Munster have joined the UKEL, this time without a partner organisation running their operations.

There are currently six announced team rosters, with two to follow. We’ll update this article with their teams as they’re revealed.

Lucendi also announced two substitute players.
