Riot Games announced that the 2019 LCS Spring Split Finals will be held in St. Louis at the Chaifetz Arena, via the LCS Countdown segment and a Nexus post.
While the first place match will be held on April 13, starting at 4 p.m. ET, there will not be a third place match for spring this year. Riot is still working out the options, and the third place match might still happen at the end of the Summer Split.
However, this doesn’t mean that the usually weekend-long event is getting cut short to just one day. Riot will have a “fan fest” event on the Friday before Finals that will include pro players, sponsors, and more to create some hype for the big event.
Chaifetz Arena is on the campus of Saint Louis University and sits about 10,600 people, though there will be a few less seats sold to accommodate for technical requirements. This is the first time that the professional League of Legends scene has officially returned to the Midwest since the 2016 World Championship Quarterfinals in Chicago.
Ticket information will be available on LoL Esports starting on Feb. 25.
