The major League of Legends competition is coming back to Spain
Today, even prior to the start of the tournament Riot has announced that the EU LCS Summer Split finals, as well as the matches for third spot, will be played at the Palacio Vistalegre stadium in Madrid, Spain. After the All-Star event held in Barcelona in 2016, this is the first major LoL tournament played in Spain. Because e-sports are going with a huge pace, this year’s tournament will be played in a much bigger stadium with a capacity of over 14,000 people.
While the date and price of the tickets is still unknown, it is expected that the stadium will be fully filled for this year’s final series.
