What’s to come in the 2018 EU LCS Summer Split!

Time to start the countdown to the Summer Split. The EU LCS will return on the 15th of June! Once again, the games will happen on Fridays and Saturdays.

2018 EU LCS Summer Split

During the Summer Split, the games will be broadcasted on Fridays and Saturdays at the same hours as before, which means that they will start at 6 pm. on Fridays and at 5 pm. on Saturdays. As per usual, all the Summer Split matches will be available to watch at lolesports.com in English, German, Spanish, French, and Polish. Of course they will be streamed on the good old official Riot Games’ Twitch and Youtube channels too.

The format for the Summer Split also remains unchanged. There will be 5 Bo1 games each day. Your favourite squads will be playing every day of the split, and all the teams will battle each other at least twice during the regular season – remember the Spring Split ties?
