With the new changes to the LEC, we are looking to get a renewed schedule to follow in 2023. 

The LEC has already revealed their decision to make some significant changes going into next year to mark the new era of professional Esports in League of Legends. In addition to the merging of Europe to now become EMEA, we are looking at a completely new format with three splits and the LEC Season Finals before the League of Legends World Championship.

Every split will now consist of a total of three weeks of competition, in which we first get to see the European teams face off in a single round-robin format. The top 8 teams from the single round-robin then continue to a double elimination group stage where the top two teams of each group compete in a four-team double elimination playoff stage.

Due to the new modifications to the format, we will likely see a change in which days in the week the European teams will play, according to Alejandro Gomis from

On Which Days Will the LEC take place?

Until now, the LEC has usually occurred every Friday and Saturday, whereas the Superweek also included Sundays. However, with the new changes, we will likely see a shift where the competition will take place on Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays. 

The new changes will likely already be implemented  in the first stage of the Winter Split, which should already begin around January and already finish in the latter part of February. 

Because of these changes, some of the regions in the newly updated ERL likely have to change their schedule. For example, the Spanish Superliga has already come out with a statement announcing that their schedule will be changed from Mondays to Tuesdays and Thursdays, according to Gomis. 

All in all, we are excited to see the LEC going into a new chapter with fewer single round-robins, the introduction of BO3s, double elimination, and much more. Are you excited about the new LEC?
