LoL: The end of LCK Summer Split will be played online

Despite managing quite well of the first wave of the epidemic, South Korea is currently facing a resurgence of COVID-19 cases, especially in Seoul. To ensure the safety of its players and its technical staff, league officials have decided that the end of the LCK Summer Split will be played entirely online, starting tomorrow.

Even though they followed strict instructions since the reopening of the LoL Park to players (systematic disinfection of equipment, replacement if necessary, respect for social distancing, etc.), the local office doesn't want to take any risks.

The tenth and final week of the regular season has just started with the last games of the season being broadcast from LoL Park. From tomorrow and until the grand final on September 5, the matches will be played from the respective facilities of the different teams.
