LEC Roadshows return: Malmö to host Summer Finals

Riot Games

Riot Games Europe announced today that the League of Legends European Championship (LEC) Summer Finals will return to an international stage for the first time since Athens 2019. The two-day event will take place September 10-11 at Malmö Arena in Sweden, the same venue that was scheduled to host the Summer Finals two years ago before the global pandemic spoiled all live events in 2020.

The event will be the first time the league makes a stop in Sweden since the 2015 LEC Finals in Stockholm. As the Swedish Public Health Agency declared COVID-19 to no longer be generally dangerous or dangerous to society from April onward, no restrictions or prohibitions apply to the running of the LEC Summer Finals. However, Riot Games could still require fans to wear masks — a policy the company enforces at its LEC studios in Berlin.

The LEC Summer Finals event at Malmö Arena will be accompanied by the LEC XPO, an activation and fan center at the nearby MalmöMässan Exhibition & Congress Center.
