In a now classic move of taking advantage of the celebration of a final to announce where the following year’s edition will be held, we already know that the end of the 2024 LEC season will take place in Munich.

Bringing spectacular live events to fans across EMEA has always been a key part of what makes the. LEC is so special. Germany has always been a large part of the legacy of the LEC, which began during its origins as the LCS EU in Cologne before moving to Berlin in 2015. Germany became the home of all things LEC, so in 2024 they pay tribute to the country by heading to Munich in the historic region of Bavaria.
Germany is not only home to a large number of LEC fans, but it is also home to the Prime League (formerly Premier Tour). The German League of Legends community has been continuously present for all things LEC, so Riot Games is thrilled to be able to bring you live LEC action from a packed stadium in 2024. The LEC has also had numerous German players throughout its history, with 6 German players currently starting in the LEC.
Germany is such an important part of League of Legends history in EMEA as the home of the LCS and the EU LEC. The city of Munich proved that it has what it takes to match our ambitions for the LEC 2024 season finals and has consistently impressed us with its commitment and vision towards the gaming and eSports industry throughout the host city selection process.
