EU LCS 2017 Summer Split Finals Head To Paris

The EU LCS is returning to French soil for the upcoming Summer Split Finals, heading to Paris to host the region’s most anticipated matches between September 2nd and 3rd.

After events in Krakow, Poland and a short journey across Germany from the studios in Berlin to Hamburg in the past year, French fans will take delight in welcoming back professional League of Legends to their capital city.

With G2 eSports, Fnatic, Unicorns of Love and Misfits all favourites to reach the finals, the matches will take place at Accor Hotels Arena in the centre of the city.

The tickets will cost between €20 to €25 for the third-placed match and €25 to €30 for the final. The option for a weekend ticket is soon to be announced, with Riot yet to finalise their pricing.

The winner of the finals will automatically qualify as Europe’s first seed for the 2017 World Championships. The team with the largest tally of championship points will secure their spot at Worlds as Europe’s second seed.

The decision to host the finals in Paris has been met with mixed reviews. Whilst the French League of Legends fanbase are regarded as one of the most vocal and passion in the world, the move to shoutcast the entire arena event in French has frustrated non-native attendees.
