In less than a week, the Heroes of the Storm Europe Summer Regional UK kicks off in Leicester and who better to host the event than everyone’s favorite Brit and ESL veteran, ReDeYe?
The event will take place between April 22nd and 24th at the ESL studios in Leicester and boasts a $100,000 prize pool, as well as a spot at the Global Summer Championship at Dreamhack Summer in Jönköping.
Joining ReDeYe at the casting desk are:
- Desk Host: Michael “KendricSwissh” Kratzel
- Analyst: Wade “Dreadnaught” Penfold
- Commentator: James “Kaelaris” Carrol
- Commentator: Manuel “Grubby” Schenkhuizen
- Commentator: Chris “Tetcher” Ivermee

This event will feature the top 8 teams that progressed through three qualifying events held from March 23rd to 9th of April. Hot off the heels of the European Spring Regional, there was little time for teams to regroup and prepare for the next season. Team Liquid and Team Dignitas both secured a spot at the event quite convincingly, winning their qualifiers without dropping a map. Team Sandwich Monkey and Silenced Monkeys earned the final two spots after making comebacks from elimination; taking 2-0 victories over Virtus.pro and EURONICS Gaming.
The full team lineup for the Summer Regional in Leicester is:
- Team Dignitas
- Team Liquid
- Casual Logic Gaming
- Natus Vincere
- Silenced Monkeys
- Team Sandwich Monkey
There’s still time to purchase tickets to the event to see the action in person.
