EU LCS Summer 2016 schedule announced with new format

There's a whole new way to watch the EU LCS.

Riot Games

We are now just about two weeks from the start of the EU LCS Summer Split, and there's a whole new format and starting time this season. The games will take place in a new best-of-two format and broadcast on two separate, simultaneous streams, starting earlier in the day.

Many rosters have been completely overhauled, including top contenders G2 and Origen. G2 acquired Origen's former bot lane in the offseason, while Origen added G2's former support.

Fnatic also brought back long time support and team captain YellowStar, with whom the team made six consecutive EU LCS finals. There's also a new team: FC Schalke 04, a German soccer team that purchased Elements' spot and roster. To view all the teams' rosters, click here.

It all starts on June 2 with Origen vs. G2 in a rematch of the EU LCS finals. The games will be played in two different spaces: the EU LCS Arena, which has been the previous stage for EU LCS events, and the EU LCS Studio. EU LCS Arena games will be streamed on the EULCS1 Twitch stream, while EU LCS Studio games will be streamed on EULCS2. All games will still be streamed on YouTube, and the Riot Games Twitch stream will rotate dependent on matchups.

Here's the schedule for this season. All times are E.astern
