The official Weibo of the League of Legends tournament announced today that all the playoffs of the 2021 LPL Summer Games will be spectator-free and that tickets will not be sold during the playoffs. The following is the official announcement of the League of Legends tournament:
In accordance with the latest changes in the current epidemic situation and in response to the call for epidemic prevention and control, in order to ensure the health and safety of all offline spectators, players, and staff, the League of Legends Tournament Committee decided after internal discussions and full communication with the clubs affected. All games of the 2021 summer playoffs (August 12-August 29) will be played at the home stadium of Shanghai Hongqiao in an audienceless mode, so tickets will not be sold during the playoffs. During the playoffs, in order to ensure the health and safety of players and staff as much as possible, all players and staff must enter the arena with a Shanghai nucleic acid test negative certificate within 7 days; teams whose bases are not in Shanghai will be in Shanghai after arriving in Shanghai. After the playoffs are all over, return to their home courts to avoid traveling between different cities during the period.
We will communicate with you as soon as possible if there are other adjustments depending on the situation of the epidemic situation. Thanks to the Summoners for their understanding and support, let us meet online during the playoffs! Hope that all summoners pay attention to personal protection to protect their own health and safety.
The tournament official announced on August 3 that all regular seasons from August 3 to August 8 will be adjusted to a spectator-free mode, and some games will be adjusted to a remote battle mode. For spectators who have already bought tickets, the official said that they will complete the refund of the relevant games as soon as possible.
