The 2020 League of Legends World Championship will be broadcasted off-site from around the world. This drew questions regarding who would be working the event, but answers have finally come.
A number of talents have announced on social media that they will be taking part in Worlds 2020.
Casters and hosts from the LEC, LCS, LCK, and OPL will be participating at Worlds, though no members of the English-language LPL desk will be on the official stream. Multiple pro players will be on the desk, as will Counter-Strike: Global Offensive host Alex “Machine” Richardson. Machine will make history by having worked LoL’s World Championship, Dota 2’s The International, and CSGO majors. He appeared as a guest member of the LEC’s broadcast team earlier this year.

Alongside the special guests, fans can look forward to seeing the usual LEC and LCS broadcast for all of Worlds. Because of different time zones, the broadcasts won’t overlap with each other, which means that fans most likely won’t see any cross-region casts.
Not only will the most familiar casters and experts be appearing on the Worlds broadcast, but a couple of professional players will also be joining. From the LEC, Excel Esports jungler Marc “Caedrel” Lamont will be a part of the casting and analyst team.
Caedrel has recently been casting the 2020 EU Masters Summer tournament, while also making an appearance on the microphone for the LEC during the summer playoffs. He will not only be on the Worlds analyst desk as an in-game expert but also cast games. It is expected that Caedrel will cast during the play-in stage.
HEY guys it’s been a crazy last few weeks with EU Masters and being on the LEC analyst desk. And I’m so honored to have been given the opportunity to both cast and be on the analyst desk for #Worlds2020 next week. You guys are really the best 💙 SEE YOU THERE pic.twitter.com/3eRActEcmc
