Now that MSI is over, it’s time to set our eyes on the LCK 2023 Summer Split. Here is everything you need to know to catch up on the Korean League.
LCK 2023 Summer Split – Teams and Schedule
Below are the ten teams that will participate in the upcoming Summer Split:
- Dplus KIA
- Gen.G Esports
- Hanwha Life Esports
- KT Rolster
- Kwangdong Freecs
- Liiv SANDBOX
- Nongshim RedForce
- OKSavingsBank BRION
There are no major shakeups in the LCK, aside from BRION’s rebranding to OKSavingsBank BRION, which is shortened to OK BRO (who knows whether it was intentional or not).
The LCK Summer Split will begin on June 7 and last until August 6, so it will be almost 2 months in total. Just like the previous split, teams will compete in a double round robin consisting of Bo3 matches. There will be two series played each day starting from Wednesday until Sunday of every week.
The top 6 will qualify for the LCK Summer playoffs, competing from August 8 to 20. The first two teams of the top 6 will get a bye to the second round.
Once the LCK Summer champion and the second LCK seed are decided (the team with the most championship points), the remaining top four teams in championship points will give their one last shot for Worlds through the Regional Finals from August 25 to 27. It will be an intensive three-day schedule that will determine the last two teams to represent Korea at Worlds 2023.
Where to watch the LCK Summer Split
As usual, you can follow all the 2023 LCK Summer Split action via the official Twitch and YouTube channels. Given the rise of co-streams in 2023, there are likely going to be co-streamers added for the Korean League (yet to be confirmed).
