The League of Legends EMEA Championship (LEC) has announced LG UltraGear will remain the official monitor partner for the 2023 season.

The renewal marks the second consecutive year for LG UltraGear and LEC organiser Riot Games’ collaboration.

As the monitor partner of the LEC, LG UltraGear will introduce a new model of gaming monitor optimised for competitive play. The monitors will be used during the winter split, which begins on January 21st at the LEC Studio in Berlin.

The 2023 season is the first following Riot Games announcing plans to expand the LEC to include players from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and Turkey.

In addition to expanding the LEC, the publisher unveiled format changes to its Mid-Season Invitational (MSI) and season-ending World Championship.

Aside from supporting the LEC, LG UltraGear is the monitor for the London Royal Ravens Call of Duty League (CDL) franchise owned by Infinite Reality, the parent company of esports infrastructure company ReKTGlobal — which also owns KOI, one of ten teams competing in the LEC.
