League of Legends EU LCS Being Held in London’s Wembley Arena

By   /   May 23, 2014

London’s Wembley Arena has hosted some of the UK’s most memorable sporting contests, from tennis to mixed martial arts to professional ice hockey, including events at both the 1948 and 2012 Olympic Games.

Given the rise of eSports popularity, like the recent $6 million prize pool of Dota 2 tournament The International (this is even higher than Tour De France, which has a pool of 3 million) it’s only natural that both types of sports get to be on one platform.

Well, that is exactly what is happening with League of Legends. On 21st June, the EU League Championship Series (LCS) will be heading to London. Week 5 of LCS summer split will be broadcasted live from the Wembley Arena on June 21st and 22nd.

This isn’t the first time an eSports competition has been held in a place which was originally designed for regular sports or other activities, but it will certainly be one of the key moments in history.

From May 8-11 2014, League of Legends All-Star Tournament was held in the Le Zenith Theater in Paris, which has been utilized for countless concerts and professional sports matches.

So are you a LoL fan and interested in being a part of this historical event? Well then keep an eye out for when the tickets go on sale here.
