Aston University is hosting the NUEL supported League of Legends series with Counterfeit and Melvinizzle as casters on board

Aston University is hosting a League of Legends series for its students to kick off 2022.

The tournament takes place on January 30th at 13:00 GMT, with the grand finals starting at around 21:00.

It will be streamed from 6 p.m twitch.tv/astonapes with the losers group final and feature casters Peter ‘Counterfeit’ Hartnell and Callum ‘Melvinizzle’ Iles.

Ten teams will compete, with players of a mix of skills ranging from Iron to Master. Nine top-flight NUEL players will take part.

Joining them is Mohammed El-han, a rising star on the Aston University League of Legends scene – younger brother of a player from the successful 2016 Aston Aunties League of Legends team.

Some Master Tier players like Rohan Hussain will also have a say.

Aston Apes said in a press release: “With our ever-growing production value and expertise, we strive to reach new heights for esports at Aston by offering students the opportunity to truly showcase the talent within.

“This is a great opportunity for students at Aston to showcase their skills to outside organizations who may be watching.

“Ultimately, our goal is to host these tournaments to showcase all of the talent we have at Aston University while also providing an escape from stressful situations at home, work or university. Nothing beats the feeling of tournament day when everyone is playing against each other, having a good time and meeting students they would never normally play with.”

The Aston student added: “It’s amazing to see such a high level of participation from League of Legends players after the recent success of the Valorant tournament. I can’t wait to see the future of Aston Esports and how they thrive in the years to come.”

The tournament is open to Aston students only and the prize pool is 8,000 Riot Points (RP).

The news comes after Aston University last month held a Valorant series billed as “Birmingham’s largest student-hosted esports tournament without university support.”
