2016 NA LCS Summer Split Schedule Update


Following feedback, the NA LCS Friday matches have a new updated schedule from week 7 on:
"TL;DR: NA LCS Friday matches will begin at 3:00 PM PT starting Week 7 - July 15. 
As you may have heard on the NA LCS, we’re moving up the Friday night matches to start earlier at 3:00 PM PT beginning on Week 7 - July 15. The Saturday and Sunday matches start times remain unchanged. 
After hearing pro player and fan feedback about the late start time - including the short turnaround between days of competition - we decided to start the NA LCS two hours earlier. 
The schedule update should make it easier for the night owls in EU and East Coast fans to be able to catch the Friday night games live. The start time change was messaged to teams and ticketholders at the end of June. We’ve also updated the Lolesports NA LCS schedule
Due to increased demand for tickets, we’ll also be moving the TL vs. TSM match on Sunday, July 17 to the Battle Arena to accommodate a bigger live audience and NV vs. APX will be swapped to the Battle Theater.

Don’t miss the NA LCS at a new time starting with Counter Logic Gaming vs. Immortals on Friday, July 15 at 3:00 PM PT."
