The Master Fans event will be broadcast on the Streamcast Twitch channel in English, Spanish and German, and the group stage will get underway on Friday and Saturday, with the knockout phase on Sunday. 

All the action will be taking place during the evening, starting at 5pm BST on Friday and 4pm BST on the other days. 

The English stream will be hosted by MisfitsGG. Spanish speaking viewers can watch the event on the Master Fans Spanish channel, while German viewers will be able to follow all the action at the StreamCast Network channel. 

In addition, some channels will co-stream parts of the event, for instance SolaryTV who will be streaming Solary Ultras’ games and Le Blue Wall, who will be doing the same for their games. Other teams and members of the community are welcome to contact organisers if they want to stream some matches. 

The Excel fan team announcement was made recently: 

The roster will feature Henry ‘Spuds’ Clarke, a free agent coach from the UK/Ireland/Nordics League of Legends scene, who has worked with teams including Bifrost Academy, Absolved and NVision.

Spuds told Esports News UK: “I’ve been part of the Excel community since summer 2020, I took part in an LEC community tournament after Nathan Edmonds (Tinder League of Legends maestro) reached out to me to take part with iTzSTU4RT and other community members. It was a fantastic experience and I have been a fan ever since really. 

“I feel really excited to be selected to represent them again in another tournament, hopefully I’ll do the community proud again.”

Spuds is sending us more details on the roster – we’ll aim to update this article later today when we hear more.

Aforementioned Stuart ‘iTzSTU4RT’ Gilson started out as an Excel superfan before going on to become a content creator for the organisation. He is also a Wild Rift caster and was recently part of the broadcast talent for the Wild Rift EMEA Championship finals in Barcelona.
