Upcoming Information

More season info is on the way!  Here’s a quick reference of what else will be coming to you in the near future.

College Championship Top 8 Schedule: We’re working with the NA Esports team to finalize dates for the College Championship, as well as contingency plans if NA isn’t ready for in-person competition by the time the Championship happens. We’re hoping to return to an in-person finals event this summer, but the safety of our players is our primary concern. We will announce a final decision on live vs. online-only College Championship Top 8 by December.

College Championship Selection Committee: As we announced last year, we will be assembling a panel of experts from the LCS and College LoL ecosystem to select the last four teams that advance to the College Championship, as well as have the authority to manually adjust seeding groups to better match the skill levels of teams across conferences. Selection committee applications will open early March.
