CLG’s jungler Mads “Broxah” Brock-Pedersen will likely be delayed until February in joining up with his new team for the 2021 LCS season.
It was recently confirmed that the Danish jungler couldn’t make it to North America in time for the LCS Lock In tournament due to visa problems. According to Broxah, it’s likely that he won’t be arriving before February, which means that he won’t only miss the Lock In tournament but also valuable practice time with his new team.

“I probably won’t be able to travel before some time in February,” Broxah said. “And even that I don’t know for sure, so it’s a bit of a waiting game really.”
It was already known that Broxah wouldn’t be arriving in North America to start in the first games of the LCS Lock In after CLG officially added Ryan “Keel” Keel to the roster as a substitute. If the absence of Broxah wasn’t enough, CLG’s new top laner Finn “Finn” Wiestål won’t be arriving in time either. Replacing him is veteran top laner Colin “Solo” Earnest, who recently played for FlyQuest.
With a lot of visa issues affecting players all over the world, Broxah is without a doubt the most unfortunate player of them all. Back in January 2020, Broxah missed out on the first games of the 2020 season after joining Team Liquid. This meant that Broxah didn’t get to play the first weeks of the 2020 LCS Spring Split, which ultimately contributed to a horrible ninth-place finish.
For this season, Broxah and all of his fans are experiencing a true deja vu as the same thing is happening again. This time around, Broxah will likely be delayed even longer than in 2020.
CLG will play its first game of the season against Team Liquid at the LCS Lock In on January 15, but it will be without Broxah.
Where is Broxah now?
Broxah is currently at home in Denmark leading up to the 2021 season. After joining CLG in the offseason, the Danish jungler has been home during the holidays to renew his visa. Unfortunately, the visa is delayed and will cause him to miss out on the start of the season. Broxah played for Team Liquid in the 2020 season but didn’t renew his contract with the team. Instead, he signed with CLG for a fresh start on another LCS team.
What is the CLG 2021 LCS lineup?
CLG has made a lot of changes in the offseason leading up to the 2021 LCS season. The team has added a total of three new players to its starting roster, Broxah being one of them.
- Top – Finn “Finn” Wiestål / Colin “Solo” Earnest
- Jungle – Mads “Broxah” Brock-Pedersen / Ryan “Keel” Keel
- Mid – Eugene “Pobelter” Park
- Bot – Jason “WildTurtle” Tran
- Support – Andy “Smoothie” Ta
