All 5 players are known within the UK&I amateur scene. The roster includes 2 players who competed in Three Ireland’s EStars League of Legends event. Darren ‘Dakin‘ Hopkins, played for Sligo Rovers, won the event, and the €20,000 prize.

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

The team is still looking for substitute players, and we encourage anyone interested to email with the subject “UKEL LoL Substitute Application” to: [email protected]
