The LEC Summer Split kicks off on June 11th

From June 11th onwards, the European competition is back on the hunt for a champion team to lift the trophy.

The LEC Summer Split kicks off on June 11th

The League of Legends European Championship (LEC) will return on June 11th with its Summer Split, Riot Games officially announced. The second Split of the year once again sees the ten teams hunt for a trophy and, like in previous Summer Splits, a ticket to the League of Legends World Championship.

Neither the format nor the specific schedule is released, but the Summer Split will likely follow the same pace the Spring Split followed: an eight-week long competition with 'Super Weekends' to kick off and round up the regular Split. Afterwards, the top six teams continue in the Playoffs, where they'll fight for a chance to play on the international stage.

Though the top three teams—MAD Lions, Rogue, and G2—will almost certainly show up in the Summer Split with the same roster they ended the Spring Split with, other teams will return in different shape. Schalke 04 has already announced that mid laner Felix "Abbedagge" Braun has been sold to the LCS' 100 Thieves, with Ilias "Nuclearint" Bizriken replacing him. Other teams are expected to announce roster changes starting May 24th, when the Mid-Season Invitational ends and the transfer window opens.
