LEC has decided to suspend the Spring Split.

The LEC released the following statement:

“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.”

As the LEC mentions above, the broadcast has no confirmed cases. However, they’ve decided to err on the side of causing as a member of the LEC team may have had contact with the virus.

With no return date offered at this time, and other leagues being delayed by the day, we'll end the article with a song as we look forward to the LEC's return.
