The EMEA champions for League of Legends have been announced

League of Legends Champions was released in North America just last year, and it has had mixed success lately. Without a large pool of players willing to give it a shot, it has fallen flat this year, with no games being played in the first week of the new season.

Now the EU and LEC are finally getting their own version. Now with a bigger pool of players in a bigger region, this could be just what we need. Here’s everything you need to know about when it starts and who can participate.
