LPL might be delayed until end of April due to coronavirus outbreak
February is usually when many professional League of Legends regions reach the middle of their respective competitive seasons. But the Chinese LPL has been severely delayed due to the coronavirus outbreak. And now, all sporting events in the country before Thursday, April 30 have been halted.
The Chinese national general administration of sports department has requested that all sporting events before April 30 be postponed, according to a translation by well-known LPL journalist Ran. The LPL was scheduled to begin in January but the league hasn’t been able to play out its games since the first week of play.
It’s unfortunate that one of the biggest leagues has been affected like this, but in the interest of general safety, this was the best decision to make. This does mean, however, that the LPL might not attend this year’s Mid-Season Invitational.
