League of Legends European Masters returns for Season 3 in April

The League of Legends European Masters will again take place next month, with the best 20 teams from European Regional Leagues (ERLs) taking part.

As there are 10 ERLs, including the likes of the UK League Championship (UKLC) Spanish Superliga Orange and others, this means two teams from each league will progress to the European Masters, where they will compete for a share of the €150,000 prize pool.

The winners so far have been Origen in Season 1 (the finals of which took place in Leicester's Haymarket Theatre) and MAD Lions in Season 2 (Katowice).

The top team from each ERL will progress straight to the group stage, while second place teams will compete in a play-in stage, which gets underway from April 8th to 11th. This will feature the second-place teams from Spain, France, the UK, Germany, Balkans, Nordics and Poland.

The top three here will progress to the group stage, while the teams coming in 2nd and 5th place will compete for a spot, as will the teams finishing 3rd and 4th.

The single round robin group stage will then get underway on April 15th and end on April 18th.

As the tournament reaches its climax, eight teams will compete in a knockout stage featuring a single elimination best-of-three bracket, then two will reach the live grand finals on April 28th.

The European Masters will again be presented by esports tournament organiser ESL.

Matches will be streamed from Riot Games' Twitch stream and ESL's YouTube channel.
