China’s Demacia Cup has run alongside the League of Legends Pro League in the past, but it’s been confined to just two weeks this year. The first games will be played this coming week, from June 29 until July 3, and will take place in Suzhou, China. At the Demacia Cup, 16 of China’s top teams will play in the round robin group stage and participate in the quarterfinals. The Top 4 teams will play semifinals, third place match, and the Grand Final in November. All 12 LPL teams and four teams from the League of Legends Secondary Pro League have been invited after winning the qualifier that took place in May. Qualified LSPL teams include Young Miracles, Thunder Bear Gaming, Star Horn Royal Club, and Legend Dragon. All four sit relatively high in the LSPL standings, jockeying for position below first place Newbee Young. LPL teams have been seeded based on their standing in the league.
