Danish jungler Mads ‘Broxah’ Brock-Pedersen has finally had his visa to compete in the United States approved and aims to make his debut for Team Liquid in week four of the LCS.
While he will still miss this weekend’s action, a visibly excited and relieved Broxah confirmed in a Twitter video that the visa had finally been accepted. “I’m going to have a hard time to stop smiling while telling you this, because my visa got approved,” he tells his followers. “I couldn’t be any happier about that, I’m so excited and so happy. It’s such a relief as well that I finally have my visa and can actually travel to LA and join up with my team and get to play some games in the LCS.”
Despite dominating in domestic competition last year, Team Liquid disappointed on the global stage. To strengthen they decided to poach Broxah from Fnatic in the LEC, but have had to play the first few weeks of LCS action without him while the long-running visa issue was solved.

During a celebratory livestream, Broxah joked about the perfect way to be greeted in the USA following his visa fiasco.
“Imagine I arrive at the airport in LA,” he says, “and the first thing I see when I’m coming out is my entire team standing there… Next to a lasagne food truck. I can just picture it in my head, that would be quite a welcome.”
It has been a patchy first four games of the split for Liquid with two wins and two losses as the team has relied on academy jungler Shern ‘Shernfire’ Cherng Tai to step in.
