What a weekend for everyone interested in the professional League of Legends scene! In case you weren’t following the news, the biggest annual international competition, League of Legends World Championship hosted its quarter-final stage this weekend. The event streams attracted a record amount of viewers across many streaming platforms and broke the record set by Fortnite World Cup 2019 Finals.

The record fell on Sunday in a series between European team Splyce and Korean powerhouse SK Telecom T1. According to Esports Charts, at one point in the series viewer count peaked at 2 504 751 across multiple streaming channels. Keep in mind that its only a quarter-final stage, so the record might be broken once again next weekend when semi-finals take the stage.

If you’re not up to date with Worlds 2019, you should know that only 4 teams remain to fight for the Summoner’s Cup. The first semi-final match-up will see Invictus Gaming facing off against FunPlus Phoenix in the best-of-5 series on November 2nd. On November 3rd fans of League of Legends will get a chance to witness a highly anticipated match-up between G2 Esports and SK Telecom T1 – a rematch of MSI 2019 finals.

According to the data, the League of Legends Worlds 2019 might become the most viewed esports event in history. Almost every play-offs game had around 2 million concurrent viewers and we’re expecting these numbers to go even higher during the semi-finals and grand final series which is scheduled for November 10th.
