League of Legends has had a wonderful year so far as far as their competitive scene goes. Viewership is up, and all of the season-long drama will all come to a head soon enough. In particular, the finals of the European League of Legends Championship Series, otherwise abbreviated as the LEC, will see its Spring Split come to an end in just a few days as three of the region’s best teams will battle it out over the coming weekend to see who is the best that Europe has to offer.

If you’re interested to watch the finals of the LEC Spring Split 2019, you’ve got everything you need to find down below.

The inaugural LEC comes with a couple of distinct changes compared to the now-defunct EU LCS. In particular, the for the playoffs is different. Instead of six-team single-elimination bracket, the LEC followed a slightly different format. Whereas in previous seasons, you’d have the third-place match and the grand finals set for the final weekend, this time around, you’ve got the loser of the “Juggernaut” match will get a second chance at redemption against the winners of the earlier rounds, followed by the winners of this match facing off against the “Juggernaut” match winners.

The first match of the weekend will be between Fnatic and Origen. After this, the winners will then get a chance to face off against Origen for a chance to be crowned as the first-ever LEC winners. The entire weekend will be played at the Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam, Netherland, and fans can watch it live in the audience or from the comforts of their homes.

The LEC Spring Split 2019 Finals will officially kick off tomorrow, April 13 (Saturday) at 16:00 GMT (17:00 CEST / 08:00 PT). You can watch it via Riot’s official broadcast channel, or via YouTube, or Twitch. You can also check to see if a local cinema is airing the LEC Finals live on their theaters over the weekend.

For Saturday, Fnatic and Origen will square off in a best-of-five series. The winners will then move on too play against G2 Esports on Sunday for the finale. All in all, these are the three absolute best League of Legends teams from the regular season facing off. Origen finished the regular season as the second seed after racking up a 12-6 win-loss record. Meanwhile, G2 Esports were the top seed after finishing 13-5. Finally, Fnatic were third with an 11-7 record, although some would argue that they were the best League of Legends team in Europe for the second half of the regular season.

Each of the three LEC teams have something to prove heading into the weekend. For Origen, they’ll be looking to avenge their embarrassing 3-0 loss to G2 Esports in the Quarterfinals. For Fnatic, they’ll be wanting to prove that they remain the kings of Europe following their runner-up finish at the 2018 League of Legends World Championship. Finally, for G2 Esports, they are the upstarts looking to establish themselves as the new top dogs of the European League of Legends scene with former Fnatic star player, Rasmus “Caps” Winther leading the way.

Whoever wins between Fnatic and Origen will face off against G2 Esports on April 14, Sunday, at 16:00 GMT (17:00 CEST / 8:00 PT).
