The LCL (LoL Continental League), the official League of Legends league for the CIS region, now has an English broadcast with a trio of UK casters on board.

Hiprain, Jamada and Viperoon will cast this, running alongside the main Russian broadcast which begins on February 12th.

UK caster DocDa will also be helping the cast for week one’s matches.

It’s being organized by defending LCL champions Unicorns of Love, who attended Worlds and MSI last year, and is supported by LCL organizer and sponsor Gig.me.

All three UK casters were part of the NLC 2022 caster talent line-up announcement last month, the League of Legends European Regional League (ERL) for the UK, Ireland and Nordics.

Hiprain and Jamada also cast some LEC games last summer, and for 2022 the LEC invited UK caster Nymaera as well as Irish duo Oisin and Dagda, who also cast the Chinese LPL’s English language broadcast with Aux and others.

The LCL is one of the many professional leagues in Riot Games’ LoL competitive ecosystem, with the winners of the spring season able to attend the Mid-Season Invitational (MSI), and the winners of the summer season able to reach the World Championship. The league used to have Gambit Esports, a big name in EU LoL from the EU LCS days, but they disbanded last year.

However, 2022’s spring season will include Team Spirit, whose Dota 2 division won The International 2021.

Unicorns of Love are an old brand name in Europe from the EU LCS days. They did not continue on with the LEC and instead entered the LCL in summer 2019, acquiring Team Just’s spot. UoL have since won a record-breaking five consecutive LCL titles, including 2021 summer.

Romain Bigeard, now the general manager of G2 Esports, was with the Unicorns for a number of years and was famous for his costumes and antiques.

They also have a sister team called Unicorns of Love Sexy Edition, who are competing in the Prime League (the DACH European Regional League) and are currently tied for third at 7-5.
