With such a large and spirited LoL Esports fan base in France, we’re delighted to bring our roadshow back to the country for the first time since 2017, by hosting our showpiece event in Montpellier in the Occitanie region
Not only is Montpellier a huge esports and gaming hub, according to Carole Delga, the President of the Occitanie Region, but it's also home to a part of the "Arcane" production team from Fortiche, which could mean that we could get some more information on the second season when the event takes place.
The LEC is back on the road, with a successful event in Summer 2022 in Malmö Sweden, and now heading to France for 2023. This sense of normalcy has come back and we're excited to see which teams will represent the LEC at the 2023 League of Legends World Championship in South Korea.
