League of Legends Championship Series summer finals to be held in New York and Stockholm

The League of Legends Championship Series today announced plans for North American and European Finals for its summer series.

The NA LCS Summer Finals will be held at Madison Square Garden in New York City while the EU Finals will be at the Hovet Arena in Stockholm. Finals are scheduled to take place Aug. 22 and 23.

"It's a long awaited trip to the East Coast for the LCS, so we're going big and hosting this year's final at the legendary Madison Square Garden, in association with Tribeca Games, the team behind the Tribeca Film Festival," stated a blog post today. "The Garden has been host to countless historic sports and entertainment events over the course of its 136 year existence and we can't wait to add League's best teams from North America to its history."

The LCS Summer Split tournament began last week in Los Angeles and Berlin, with teams competing for a place in the finals.
