The LPL Summer Split 2022 will kick off on the 10th of June with iG going against WBG. Usually, the LPL games start on a Monday, so this is a bit earlier than expected, I guess a welcome surprise for all LPL fans. The weekend is packed with 2 games on every day, with the action continuing on the Monday. The LPL also released the schedule for the first 5 weeks, which you can find here.
The LPL will play a single round-robin, with all matches being a best of 3. At the end, the top 10 teams will make the playoffs. The regular season will run 11 weeks, with the playoffs being played afterwards.
