In April, Excel unveiled it’s completed training facility at Twickenham Stadium. The facility is currently home to Excel’s 10-men League of Legends roster and has been custom designed to facilitate their needs. The bespoke areas include a ten-person solo practice room, streaming room, hot-desking and chill-out space.

After a 5 – 13 finish in the Spring Split, Excel has made some adjustments to its roster by bringing in both Petter “Hjarnan” Freyschuss and Son “Mickey” Young-min for the Summer Split. They have also appointed David “DLim” Lim as Head Coach who has a long history of coaching experience both in EU and NA.
