Hey everyone, this is Mo Fadl aka Riot UglySmurf, Head of Esports for Riot in the UK.
I wanted to clear up some confusion, as we’re seeing reports about our plans for the UK League Championship in 2020 based on some preliminary discussions we’ve been having.
I can confirm that we will not be working with LVP on the UKLC in 2020. LVP remain a valued partner for Riot Games, working alongside our Spanish team on the SuperLiga Orange, and we really appreciate their hard work helping to establish the UKLC and Forge of Champions over the past two years.
Right now, we’re discussing our options for the UKLC in 2020, and while we totally understand people’s desire to speculate and interpret, any speculation on what we will do is genuinely premature. We are keeping teams up to date, and we’ll make sure to let fans know what’s happening when the time is right.
We’re super proud of how far the UKLC and Forge of Champions have come in the last two years, and we will continue our commitment in levelling up the regional league ecosystem for League of Legends in the UK and across Europe.
