Our Managing Director, Christopher Sword said the following:
"I'm really excited to bring these boys on board for the UKEL League of Legends event. They approached me as a pre-made 5, which was beneficial as they already had existing team chemistry. I'm sure they will do well in the event, and I look forward to the tournament." - Christopher Sword
