The BBC has confirmed that it will be broadcasting the League of Legends World Championships on the BBC Three channel which is in the process of becoming an online only channel.
The League of Legends World Championships will be held at Wembley Arena and BBC Radio 1’s Dev Griffin will helm the broadcasting duties alongside gaming presenter Julia Hardy.
BBC Three controller Damian Kavanagh said
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.
Starting on Thursday 15th October the four days of quarter finals coverage of the League of Legends World Championships will be watchable using BBC Three and BBC Sport online.
