NA LCS matches will be ending a littler earlier starting next week. AS of July 15, the NA LCS’s Friday matches will start at 6 p.m. ET instead of 8 p.m. ET, Riot Games announced on Friday.
Saturday and Sunday matches will remain unchanged. “After hearing pro player and fan feedback about the late start time – including the short turnaround between days of competition – we decided to start the NA LCS two hours earlier,” Riot stated in a press release. “The schedule update should make it easier for the night owls in EU and East Coast fans to be able to catch the Friday night games live.” This change also brings the Friday NA LCS start time closer to the end of the EU LCS matches on Friday, with start at 11 AM ET. The first game on the new schedule will see Counter Logic Gaming taking on Immortals on July 17.
