The League of Legends Championship Series (abbreviated to "LCS") is the name of the professional LoL esports league owned and operated by Riot Games. They divide the LCS into two different sub-leagues in North America (NA LCS) and Europe (EU LCS) where 10 teams in each continent play in Riot Games' own studios in Los Angeles, California and Berlin, Germany respectively.

Each annual season of tournament play is divided into two splits, Spring and Summer, both consisting of nine weeks of tournament matches in round-robin format, concluding with play-offs between the top six teams. The winner of the summer split, the team with the most championship points, and the winner of the gauntlet tournament will qualify for the largest tournament in League of Legends esports at the end of the season: the League of Legends World Championship, also known as "LoL Worlds".

Similar regional competitions exist in China (LPL), South Korea (LCK), Taiwan/Hong Kong/Macau (LMS) and various other regions. The qualifying teams of these regional competitions will also be sent to LoL Worlds at the end of the season.
