LEC Summer Split will Return June 12

The EU LCS is rebranding to LEC in 2019

With COVID-19 throwing everything for a loop many wondered when the Summer Split would be starting back up for the LEC. Well Riot has announced that the LEC will be returning June 12 with the Summer Split Finals occurring on September 5 and 6. The Finals are supposed to be in Malmö, Sweden and while those have not been canceled yet, the team is already working on backup plans.

With the announcement comes two “Superweeks” of LEC action during week one and eight. These will include games Friday through Sunday with every team playing three games instead of two. This is due to the fact that the Split will be only eight weeks instead of the normal nine. It will allow teams to still have two full round robins. Also there will be full weeks off to compensate as well. After weeks four and eight, there will be a week break. These will coincide with the end of each round robin.

They are trying to get the games back in the Berlin studio with fans but with everything so unclear because of COVID-19, they are unable to promise anything at this time. While this may be unfortunate, it is good to see that the LEC are planning on finishing out the year. This bodes well for the rest of the League of Legends scene and hopefully Worlds as well.
