Popular YouTuber Jordan 'LEGIQN' Payton will be part of the official broadcast team for this week's Friday Fortnite tournament.
He will join Twitch streamer Ally 'AllysGotGame' and esports commentator Taylor 'Reflections II' on the UMG Events live-stream of the $20,000 celebrity Fortnite tournament.
Friday Fortnite is a double elimination tournament that is hosted by YouTuber and 'DramaAlert' host Daniel 'KEEMSTAR' Keem and UMG.
Set to take place on May 25th, the third running of the competition will feature some of the biggest names of the online gaming/content creation community, including the likes of Twitch streamer 'Ninja' and YouTuber 'RomanAtwood', as well as popular Canadian rapper and singer Tory Lanez.
UMG Events, which apart from hosting the tournament, will also be live-streaming the individual streams of some of the big-name participants.
They announced that LEGIQN will be part of their broadcast team for Friday Fortnite #3 via a Twitter post on May 24th.

KEEMSTAR also took to Twitter to personally announce that the gaming entertainer will be one of the casters for his popular weekly competition.
It will likely do well for UMG to have included LEGQIN as part of the broadcast team for the tournament stream, considering how many of the participants also stream on their own, individual channels.
As a longtime popular member of the online gaming community, the YouTuber is sure to bring his great sense of humor and apt game analysis skills to UMG's Friday Fortnite coverage.
