Who else is excited for professional League of Legends in 2022? We know that the LEC, LCS and LPL are returning to the pro scene quite soon, but what about the LCK? Well, finally we’ve got the start date for the Korean league as well!
Are you ready to watch DAMWON KIA dominate 2022 as well even after shuffling their roster around? Or are you more excited to watch a young T1 with Faker at the helm? Maybe a dark horse like Nongshim or Kwangdong Freecs – formerly known as the Afreeca Freecs – has stolen your heart?
When Will the 2022 LCK Spring Split Start?
The 2022 LCK Spring Split will kick off on January 12, 2022. The first day will have two best of three matches, the first between Liiv Sandbox and DRX, while the second sees Kwangdong Freecs Teddy and Ellim face off against their previous team – T1.
Unlike the LEC and LCS who play their games on the weekends only, the LCK has their games spread out throughout the week. The LCK has games scheduled every day of the week, except for Mondays and Tuesdays.
