LCS Spring Finals 2024: Riot Games Arena in Los Angeles chosen as venue amidst shift in league's strategy

Posted : 02 February 2024

In a bold move, the LCS, North America's premier League of Legends franchised league, has unveiled the venue for its highly anticipated 2024 Spring Finals—none other than the Riot Games Arena in Los Angeles.


This decision, as communicated by Carlos Antunes, Riot Games’ Head of League of Legends Esports for the Americas, comes with a strategic shift in the league's approach. The choice to remain in the arena reflects a deliberate reduction in the frequency of 'roadshows,' the league's term for its schedule of nationwide tours beyond the confines of the Riot Games facilities.


While last year's LCS Spring Finals ventured to the PNC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina, the Spring Split of 2024 will break away from the tradition of traversing different locales. Antunes indicated that a roadshow is on the horizon for the LCS Summer Finals, emphasizing that this decision is a result of reallocating investments to enhance other aspects of the league. The official statement highlighted a commitment to innovating the viewing experience, elevating entertainment value, and celebrating the league's best.


This move aligns with adjustments made by Riot Games in its European counterpart, the LEC, which reduced the number of live events outside its Berlin arena. The LCS decision to hold the Split finals within the Riot Games facility closely follows the company's recent announcement of a workforce reduction, affecting departments across the board, including esports production teams.


This reshaping of the esports landscape has not spared the LCS, which underwent changes in 2023, such as the reduction of franchise teams from 10 to eight and a return to weekend schedules following the departure of Golden Guardians and Evil Geniuses.


Amidst these shifts, Riot Games remains steadfast in its commitment to delivering an exceptional viewing experience for fans and players alike, embarking on a trajectory that values impact and innovation in the evolving landscape of competitive gaming.
