The race to the World Championship begins on June 17
The LEC returns on June 17, starting the first super week of the 2022 Summer Split with Team Vitality versus MAD Lions. The European league will kick off the League of Legends competition with some unique matchups, and a best-of-one between Rogue and Fnatic will close the first day of the split.
On the first day of the competition, the current title holders G2 will face Astralis, who closed out the Spring Split in the last position. LEC fans will have to wait until the end of the second day of the split to see G2 battle against Rogue in a 2022 LEC Spring Split finals rematch.
Despite the league’s format not changing, the schedule for the first two weeks of the 2022 Summer Split seems to have changed the usual rhythm that fans are accustomed to, balancing out traditional matches with new rivalries. At the same time, the LEC has kept some ties to the past split by kicking off Summer with the same matchup as Spring.
Here is the full schedule for the first two weeks of the 2022 LEC Summer Split:
First super week – Friday, June 17
Saturday, June 18
Sunday, June 19
Second week – Friday, June 24
Saturday, June 25
The first match of the 2022 LEC Summer Split will begin at 11am CT, signaling the start of the last split of the year and the beginning of the race towards the 2022 League of Legends World Championship.
