The EU LCS Summer Split hasn’t quite started yet, but we already know where it’s going to end: the Palacio Vistalegre in Madrid.
The Palacio Vistalegre stadium will play host to the EU LCS Finals and third place matches to determine the victors of the Summer Split as well as which team will be guaranteed one of Europe’s spots at the 2018 World Championship.
This will be the first large-scale League of Legends event held in Spain since the 2016 All-Star Event was held in Barcelona. The Palacio Vistalegre has a capacity of just over 14,000, and Riot is sure to announce ticketing info when we’re a little closer to the event. This is the second time the venue has hosted the EU LCS Finals, which it also did for the Spring Split of 2015.
The European LCS Summer Split kicks off Friday, June 15 and will run for a nine week group stage to determine which teams make it to playoffs. The top six teams advance to the playoffs and will compete in best of five series for the chance of going to Madrid to compete in the finals.
