The UKLC will have 8 weeks of action every Sunday and Monday and it will be aired on BBC. The UKLC is the top League of Legends competitions in the United Kingdom and Ireland, but the NLC is the next step in League of Legends competitions. The NLC has a combination of teams from all over Northern Europe including Finland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, and the UK and Ireland.

The NLC competition was brought to life from a partnership between Riot Games, the developer of League of Legends and tournament organizers DreamHack.

Head of Digital at BBC Sport, Ben Gallop, spoke on the decision: “When it comes to esports, it doesn’t come much bigger than League of Legends and we’re very excited to see all teams in action throughout this summer period. Along with all the live sport that is about to resume on the BBC soon, this coverage over the coming weeks shows our ongoing commitment to esports.”
