Excel Esports has been one of the organizations that is known for having top-performing teams for League of Legends and played a significant role in the inauguration of League of Legends European Championship. On the other side, 16-year old Jaden “Wolfiez” Ashman earned $2.25 million last year for coming second at a Fortnite tournament and has continued his career as a professional Fortnite player since then.

Ashman’s efforts even helped him earn a Guinness World Record as the youngest person in the history of esports to win over $1million USD at a single event. He is the highest esports earner in the UK.

However, this is just the beginning of his professional career. Excel Esports had announced that Ashman’s is joining the esports organization. His signing on is a big deal for the organization as well, as Ashman will be representing Excel Esports in Fortnite in upcoming events & tournaments.

“As an organization, we have been carefully exploring expansion opportunities for a while and when we first met Wolfiez it just seemed like such a natural fit. Everyone at Excel Esports is really excited to work with Ashman to show everyone the best of what British esports has to offer.”
