After eight weeks of play and 90 regular season matches, the LCK Summer Split has finally wrapped up, and the playoff bracket is set. Six teams will compete in the summer playoffs, with the winner directly qualifying for this year’s League of Legends World Championship as Korea’s number one seed. 

LCK fans won’t have to wait long between the end of the regular season and the playoffs, as the postseason will begin just three days after the Summer Split wraps up. On Aug. 17, the first round of the playoffs will begin, and teams will start to play best-of-five matches to determine who moves on and who goes home.

Here are all the matchups for this year’s LCK summer playoffs, which will begin later this week.
