The UK and Ireland have been blessed with a range of top esports broadcast talent over the years – and the EU Masters will be featuring some of League of Legends’ best.
10 of the 13 people in the Spring 2021 EU Masters talent line-up are from the UK and Ireland, in what is an eclectic mix of experienced LEC casters and hosts, and those from the European Regional Leagues.
From the LEC, there’s Medic, Foxdrop, Caedrel (all UK) and Laure (France), then from the NLC and UKLC there’s Excoundrel, Hiprain, Jamada and Aux (all UK), plus Guldborg (Denmark) and Troubleinc (Greece).
And from the Chinese LPL, we have Munchables (UK), Dagda (Ireland) and Penguin (Ireland) entering the EU Masters fray.
For some, this will be their EU Masters debut. Jamada has had an interesting journey in particular, having gone from a player with Bulldog Esports to coaching UK teams like LionHearts and MNM Gaming to transitioning to casting for the UKLC, the NLC – and now the EU Masters.
The EU Masters is a tournament connecting the top League of Legends teams from the various European Regional Leagues (ERLs), including France, Spain, Poland, the UK and more.
BT Excel, the academy team of Excel Esports, will be representing the UK this time around.
