LoL: Get ready for the Mid-Season Cup

Update — May 20

The LPL English Twitter account just published the schedule of the tournament !

The competition will begin on May 28, 1 PM PDT, with a battle of giants: T1 vs FunPlus Phoenix.

Update — May 7

Via the Korean information website Fomos, several details about the upcoming tournament between LCK and LPL have filtered out — and before all a name: the Mid Season Cup.

Four teams from each region will reportedly compete between May 28 and 30, for a prize that is still unknown. On the LCK side, T1, Gen.G, DragonX, and Damwon Gaming would have accepted the invitation, while JD Gaming, Top Esports, FunPlus Phoenix, and Invictus Gaming would be here to represent LPL.

It remains to be seen if the tournament will happen at the LoL Park in Seoul or a the LPL's Shanghai Stadium. In any case, amid the current pandemic situation, we can safely assume that the Mid Season Cup will be played without audience.

Original Article

Because the Mid Season Invitational 2020 has been officially canceled, there is now a period of almost two months before any new League of Legends competition. To fill that void, Riot Games Korea has decided to organize a temporary event.

The idea for such a tournament first came from T1's CEO Joe Marsh. Following the victory of his team after the LCK Spring Split, he suggested on Twitter to organize a friendly competition between LCK and LPL.

The enthusiasm around his proposal was such that Riot Korea decided to actually create the event. It remains to be seen when it will happen and which team will be involved.

The LEC and LCS return in June!

The Spring Split just ended with victories for Cloud9 and G2 Esports, meaning it's now time to look forward to the next part of the season! Get ready — the action resumes on June 12 and 13.
