The European League of Legends Championship Series, the game’s main esports tournament in the region, is coming to a close.

The finals recently ended with Fnatic hoisting the trophy in a thrilling 3-1 victory over Schalke 04 to go to Worlds as the region’s first seeds. Team Vitality, who had the most championship points in the region, will also be attending Worlds as second seed.

There is one more spot on the line, however, with the third placed seed being decided between four teams at the EU regional finals, taking place from Sept. 14 to 16 at the EU LCS studio in Berlin.
