Games developer Riot Games has revealed that the 2024 LEC Season Finals will take place in Munich, Germany.
The announcement was made over the weekend during the LEC’s 2023 Season Finals at the Sud de France Arena.
Germany is a popular destination within the European League of Legends ecosystem due to the LEC hosting its regular season in Berlin since 2015. Prior to that the then EU LCS held its season in Cologne, Germany.
The country also hosts one of EMEA’s top League of Legends regional leagues, with the Prime League being the third most popular regional competition for the summer season (38,314). Despite being third, however, the league is still some way behind Spain’s SuperLiga Summer 2023 (160,883) and France’s LFL Summer 2023 (149,157) in terms of viewership.
Further details, such as a possible venue, have not been disclosed.
The LEC 2023 Season Finals saw G2 Esports beat long-time rivals Fnatic, becoming the first LEC season champion under the competition’s new three-split format. According to Esports Charts, the competition drew a peak viewership of 654,942 and an average viewership of 244,547 across just over 35 hours of airtime.
Alberto Guerrero, Head of Esports EMEA at Riot Games, commented: “Germany is such an important part of EMEA League of Legends history as the home of the EU LCS and LEC.
“The city of Munich showed that they’ve got what it takes to match our ambitions for the 2024 LEC Season Finals, and have consistently impressed us with their commitment and vision to the gaming and esports industry throughout the host city vetting process.”
