Some of the most exciting League of Legends has been played in the LCS this Split and now that action is going to be shared with more people than ever before. American cable sports channel ESPN has agreed to broadcast the LCS playoffs and help fill the sports void.
The first match between 100 Thieves and TSM was broadcast last night on the ESPN App, but all future matches, including Evil Geniuses vs Cloud9, Flyquest vs TSM, as well as the third place match up and the finals, will be broadcast on ESPN2.
“Now more than ever, coming together to watch and enjoy elite competitive gaming has the power to unite us as a community,” Chris Greeley, LCS commissioner says. “We’re thrilled to bring the very best of the LCS to new audiences and existing fans through this partnership and look forward to some high-skill games on the Rift as we crown a new Spring champion.”
The league will still be broadcast on Riot’s Twitch and YouTube channels, so if you want to enjoy the matches with chat, you can.
