2019 LCS Spring Finals is Going to St. Louis
The two best teams from the 2019 LCS Spring Split will compete in St. Louis, Missouri to earn a chance to compete at the Mid-Season Invitational.
Riot Games announced the 2019 LCS Spring Finals will be held at the Chaifetz Arena in St. Louis, Missouri on April 13, 2019; the matches will begin at 1:00 PM PST. Ticket information for the event will be posted on February 25 via Lolesports.com.
The Chaifetz Arena, which is located at Saint Louis University, has a total of 10,600 seats. Riot Games expects to put around 8,500 on sale. Instead of assigned seating, the majority of tickets will be separated into tiers of General Admission. However, there will be “premium seating” which will be assigned.
The event’s setting is not the only change implemented to this year’s Spring Finals. Riot Games will be removing the third-place match entirely leaving only North America’s top two teams to compete for the title of Spring Split Champion and an opportunity to play at the Mid-Season Invitational later this year. According to Riot Games, the match is getting cut because it “provided some underwhelming matchups and diminished fan interest due to the lower stakes.”
Instead of the typical “Finals Weekend” we are used to, Riot Games is in talks with a venue to hold a “fan event” for the Friday before the Finals. They “hope” to share the exact details of this event, including the scale and scope, sometime soon.
The 2019 LCS Spring Split has just begun this week. Although it is way too early to determine who the actual number one team is, TSM, Team Liquid, FlyQuest, Clutch Gaming, and OpTic Gaming have all won their first games of the year. As of this writing, OpTic Gaming and FlyQuest are playing their second game with Cloud9 and 100 Thieves to follow.
Speaking of League of Legends’ 2019 Season, Riot Games just posted a developer diary video in which they shared details on how they are treating this year’s skins and in-game events. The new season was kicked off with a cool cinematic featuring the original song, “Awaken.”
