BBC Announces Live Coverage Of The League of Legends World Championships

The BBC have announced live coverage of the League of Legends World Championships which will be held at Wembley, London, from Thursday 15th October for four days.

Radio 1 DJ Dev Griffin will be hosting, assisted by Julia Hardy and gaming casters Leigh ‘Deman’ Smith and James ‘Stress’ O’Leary, who will be “offering their expert commentary.”


However, the coverage will be on BBC 3 and will only be available online, not on your actual tellybox.

Damian Kavanagh, Controller of BBC Three, says: “We jumped at the chance to collaborate with BBC Sport and bring this massive UK event to a wider audience. BBC Three will always experiment with new ways to deliver content that young people want, in ways they want. I think this is an exciting way to cover something millions of young Brits love, in a BBC Three way.”

  1. Incredibly excited for this.

    Been trying to keep it a secret for weeks. I’ll be at the quarters myself next Thursday. If there’s any LoL fans on TSA that want to meet up at the event, let me know :D
