One day after announcing that the League of Legends European Championship and the League of Legends Championship Series would no longer host a live audience, tailgate events or press attendance, Riot Games announced that the LEC would be suspended indefinitely.
As noted below, no players or staff members have been confirmed to have been in contact with the virus, and this is a precaution to avoid any infection of LEC’s members:
“In light of uncertainty during the rapidly changing COVID-19 pandemic situation and in an abundance of caution, we’ve decided to err on the side of player and staff safety and suspend the LEC Spring Season until further notice. At this point in time, no member of the LEC staff or players has tested positive for COVID-19, however, we have reason to suspect an LEC staff member may have been exposed to the virus. This person is under quarantine and is being evaluated by health professionals. We will update everyone as soon as we have more information.”
