What is LPL?

LPL odds

There are four main professional League of Legends leagues across the globe: the LEC in Europe, LCS in NA, and LCK in Korea. The final league to complete this quad squad is the League of Legends Pro Series, or LPL, in China. 

The LPL was officially created in 2013 by Tencent, the parent company of Riot Games, based in China. The aim was to create a solid and competitive league in China and expand the presence of competitive esports in the region. Positive Energy was the winner of the inaugural season. 

Over the years, the LKPL eventually strengthened as more teams were added to the roster. A franchising model guaranteed some teams had a permanent slot. Between 2018 and 2019, LPL started to gain international success, as Invictus Gaming became the first Chinese team to win LoL Worlds. From here onwards, LPL would consistently go toe-to-toe with LCK, another global LoL powerhouse, asserting China's dominance in the LoL esports scene. In the 2023 LoL World Championship, Weibo Gaming came second, losing to T1. 

LPL 2024: Format

The LPL 2024 season will be divided into two splits: the Spring and Summer Split. The 2024 Spring Split begins on January 22, 2024, for over nine weeks of intense professional gameplay before the Playoffs begin in April.

LPL Spring 2024 will kick off with the Group Stage, as all 17 teams compete in a single round-robin format where all matches are Bo1. 

The top ten teams then advance to the Playoffs, which consist of two phases. Phase 1 has a king-of-the-hill structure, with 3rd, 6th, 7th, and 10th in one bracket and 4th, 5th, 8th, and 9th in the other. Only the top four participants advance to Phase 2, a double-elimination format. All matches are Bo5 for maximum intensity. 

The LPL Summer Split began on June 1, 2024.

LPL 2024: Prize Pool

The LPL boasts a $590K prize pool, equating to ¥4,200,000 CNY in local currency, divided amongst the top six teams. Check out how the prize pool is shared amongst the teams below. 

  • 1st: ¥2,000,000 ($281,270 USD)
  • 2nd: ¥1,000,000 ($140,635 USD)
  • 3rd: ¥500,000 ($70,317 USD)
  • 4th: ¥300,000 ($42,190 USD)
  • 5th - 6th: ¥200,000 ($28,127 USD)

LPL teams are compete for Championship Points in the Playoffs. The teams with the most points by the end of both splits get invited to LoL Worlds later in the year.
