  • WHAT IS THE UK LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP (UKLC)?

    Introducing The UK League Championship (UKLC)! Following on from the success of last year’s inaugural Forge of Champions, LVP and Riot Games have teamed up to bring you a brand new UK League Championship – the UKLC. It has a sharp new look and all the drama to match, and all teams have the chance to fight their way from the ground up to the highest level.

    In 2019, the entire season will fit under one bold banner – the UKLC – which will be divided into two splits.

    • The first split starts with the best nine UK League teams fighting to win the championship. Then, UKLC teams will throw down for Forge of Champions, alongside some new faces.

    • From split two onward we’ll see the full season cycle, with a relegation-promotion tournament giving a chance for new teams to enter the league before the next season kicks off.

      For the Summer Split, there are two new teams to see in action – tune in every Wednesday and Thursday at 6pm BST on Twitch.

  • FORMAT:

    EVERYONE TO THE TOWER!

    The UKLC uses a format we’re calling ‘the tower’, our own take on the classic king-of-the-hill style competition.

    • Eight teams will enter into a single-elimination, best-of-one bracket every week. The winner gets the chance to take on the reigning tower champion in a bid to steal their title and take the tower for themselves.

    • Teams are awarded championship points based on where they finish each week, with the champions earning the most points of all.

    • After all seven weeks have been played, the total championship points are tallied up and the top seven teams will enter the playoffs to fight for the UKLC title.

    ANYONE CAN JOIN!

    • In May, all nine UKLC teams will return in the Forge of Champions, joined by four teams that qualify via our open tournament.

    • These four teams will then face the bottom two UKLC teams for a chance to join the UKLC summer split.
