Here is the bracket for the 2023 LCS Spring Split playoffs

The field is set, and the playoffs begin later this week.

The 2023 LCS Spring Split has wrapped up its regular season, and now, the league will shift its focus to the Spring Playoffs. After a flurry of tiebreaker games on the Spring Splits final day, the top six teams in the playoff bracket have been decided. 

After an eight-game day on the final day of the split, it was determined that Cloud9 would serve as the leagues top seed in the Spring Playoffs, with FlyQuest right behind them at number two. Unlike other leagues formats, C9 and FlyQuest are not rewarded with a first-round bye for finishing in the top two. Instead, the fifth and sixth-place squadsEvil Geniuses and Golden Guardiansare slotted directly into the lower bracket of the playoffs, meaning each of their games has win-or-go-home implications. 

The Spring Split playoffs begin right after the conclusion of the split, with no off-week in-between the end of the regularly scheduled games and the start of the postseason. All matches played during the Spring Playoffs will be best-of-fives. 

Here is the bracket and the schedule of matches for the 2023 LCS Spring Playoffs.
