Riot Games disclosed the sites of the LCS 2023 spring and summer split finals, the broadcast schedule, and the broadcast team.
The spring and summer finals will be a roadshow, so fans of the North American league won’t have to fly to California to watch the best of the LCS compete for the postseason trophy. The LCS Championship will be held in Newark, New Jersey’s Prudential Center, while the LCS Spring Finals will be held in North Carolina’s PNC Arena.
On January 26, Mastercard holders will be able to purchase tickets for the LCS 2023 Spring Final, and on January 27, the general public will be able to do the same. Riot Games has scheduled the championship game for April 8–9 and announced that the LCS Championship will take place on August 19 and 20. However, Riot has not yet made public the event’s ticketing details. The statement also contained information on the LCS broadcast for the 2023 season, including the debut of Marc ‘Raafaa’ Alexander Arrambide as a new broadcast talent.
Locations For The LCS 2023 Broadcast And Finals Disclosed By Riot
The statement includes all the usual contributors to the LCS broadcast, with the exception of desk host James “Dash” Patterson, who, in early January, publicly announced that he will not return to the broadcast. According to the release, the broadcast would depart from the conventional style of sports broadcasting in 2023.
This year, we’re expanding on that base and strengthening our dedication to promoting player stories with direct broadcast integrations including gameplay analyses, unique sketches, match commentary, a new Player Profiles series, and more. The release stated, “At the same time, we’re empowering an awesome roster of performers and casters to steer the action and make settings that fully exhibit their distinctive abilities and interests.
The statement also makes reference to Dash, revealing that the former desk presenter will host his own “excursion program” with league players outside of the LCS Arena. The new-look teams compete in the LCS beginning on January 26 for a chance to play at the PNC Arena in April.
