LEC teams will continue to compete remotely throughout 2020 Summer Split playoffs and finals due to coronavirus

The LEC updated League of Legends fans today on what the 2020 Summer Split playoffs will look like, explaining that COVID-19 precautions will continue.

The LEC will still be produced from the studio in Berlin while teams will compete remotely from their training facilities. While Riot hoped to bring teams back to the studio for playoffs, the company feels there isn’t a “safe solution to accommodate everyone.”

The LCK announced earlier today that it will also host its playoffs online because the coronavirus’ spread “has recently worsened around Seoul.” Korea’s domestic league operated from LoL Park without a live audience under strict safety guidelines. But starting Aug. 21, all matches will be held online.

The LEC playoffs kick off tomorrow, Aug. 21 at 11am CT.
