LEC summer split finals saw huge jump in viewership

Compared to last year, viewer numbers are up in a major way, with plenty of fans watching G2's victory.

The League of Legends European Championship (LEC) finals have already concluded, with G2 Esports being the champions of the summer season, and it turns out that this was a good event for Riot Games in terms of viewership.

It was actually the second-most viewed EU event in history, seeing a 97% increase in viewers compared to the same finals last year, marking the largest year-on-year growth ever. There were 517,018 viewers, in terms of average minute audience, which marks a growth of 45.4% as well.

As for concurrent audience, this peaked at 864,337, which is a 67% increase from last year, and this was helped by the fact that the event was broadcast in seven languages via broadcast partners.
