LoL: LEC and LCS live audience suspended

The decision intervenes less than a week after the postponement of the MSI.

LoL: LEC and LCS live audience suspended

A few days after announcing that MIS would be delayed and less than a week after having taken sanitary measures regarding the League of Legends Championship Series, Riot Games just announced that the LCS would be played without a live audience and onsite press attendance until further notice.

The same decision applies to the LEC for the remainder of the Spring Split, including the Finals.

Because of the coronavirus outbreak, several major esports and video game events were postponed or canceled, and we can only hope that the League esports scene will somehow manage to dodge the bullet.

The 2020 LCS Spring Finals are now at stake and Riot Games are considering moving the event from Frisco, TX to the LCS Arena in Los Angeles — just like they did by moving the LEC Finals from Budapest to the LEC Studios in Berlin.

According to the studio, we will have further information about it on March 20 — until then, we'll just have to cross our fingers.
