BBC Three To Cover League Of Legends World Championship


For the first time, BBC Three will be offering live coverage of the League of Legends World Championships live from Wembley. Beginning on Thursday 15 October, action from all four days of the quarter finals will be available online.

Coverage will be hosted by Radio 1 DJ and avid gamer Dev Griffin. Julia Hardy will be interviewing players and fans in the arena with gaming casters Leigh ‘Deman’ Smith and James ‘Stress’ O’Leary offering their expert commentary.

Great to see esports get mainstream media support, especially when its regarding my personal favourite game. Smith used to cast the official Riot streams and is generally loved by the community, so it seems like BBC knows what it is doing.
