Production service company Unified and Riot Games have agreed to renew their existing partnership in the lead-up to LCS Proving Grounds. The partnership will see both sides once again hosting the amateur League of Legends tournament set to commence on May 30th.
“In addition to the great opportunities these players have to showcase their talent and fight for a tangible path-to-pro experience, Unified is committed to providing aspiring talent the same opportunities,” said Rebecca Rong, Director of Marketing for Unified. “We are all incredibly excited to see how this next round of Circuit Qualifiers unfolds, and look forward to telling these stories alongside developing talent in the League of Legends community.”
LCS Proving Grounds will feature 32 teams invited to compete in the Open Qualifiers. The top 18 will then move onto the Circuit Qualifier.
Teams will be competing for the lion’s share of a $12,500 prize pool.
