2023 LEC Season Finals: Schedule, Standings and How to Watch

The top 6 teams will duke it out in the LEC's Season Finals for the 1st Seed position before the victors fly to Seoul for Worlds 2023.


In a show of sheer determination and showstopping talent, one unlikely team forged a path to taste their Finals Stage for the first time. The Brits at Excel Esports took on the odds and landed a spot at the final match-up for the first time in the org's 5-year history, only to be humbled by the region's reigning leads, G2 Esports. And now that the dust has settled, the greatest teams in EMEA have set their sights on each other yet again as the months give way to another monumental clash.

In just weeks following the grand conclusion of the Summer Split, six sun-kissed teams are gearing up for another exciting brawl.  The fights in the Season Finals will be the true and ultimate test to see if the EMEA reps still have it in them to go toe-to-toe on the international stage.

Before the best League of Legends players converge at Korea's capital for 2023's World championship title, the world will have their eyes on the LEC Season Finals. So we've compiled the complete match schedule for the year-end event, as well as the scores and the fastest way to watch from home. Without further ado, here's the schedule for the LEC Season Finals in 2023, and where to watch it.
