North American esports organisation Team Liquid has joined forces with esports and entertainment venue District E Powered by Ticketmaster to host viewing parties for the 2023 LCS Summer Split.
Viewing parties commence on June 15th when Team Liquid will play its opening match against 100 Thieves.
Located in Washington, DC, District E is an esports venue that is the home of esports teams such as NBA 2K League franchise Wizards District Gaming, NHL 23 esports brand Caps Gaming and Team Liquid.
Following the first viewing party, future Team Liquid viewing parties will follow the organisation’s schedule throughout the Summer Split, which includes a total of 18 matches taking place from mid-June until the end of July.
In addition to watching the matches, Team Liquid fans attending viewing parties will also have opportunities to participate in question-and-answer sessions with Team Liquid players and staff alongside merchandise giveaways.
The regular season of the LCS sees all ten teams compete for a chance to qualify for the season-ending championship. The top eight teams will then play for a chance to become split champions as well as secure places for the 2023 League of Legends World Championship taking place in South Korea.
Team Liquid first competed in the LCS in 2015. Since then, the organisation has won four LCS championships. Aside from League of Legends, Team Liquid continues to expand at an impressive rate. In May 2023, the organisation opened a multi-million dollar esports facility in São Paulo, Brazil.
Steve Arhancet, Team Liquid Co-CEO, spoke on the news: “I was raised in the DMV, and I feel so much joy seeing my two loves, my hometown and my favourite game, come together in District E.
“It’s a top-notch venue in a brilliant location, and I can’t wait to hang out with other League of Legends fans. Our players will come to visit for meet-and-greets and AMAs with fans at the venue, so make sure to follow District E and Team Liquid for updates on our schedule.”
