This week it was announced that the EU LCS Summer finals are going to be held in Paris, France. The battlegrounds will be at AccorHotels Arena, from September 2nd until September 3rd. After a so-far disappointing split, can G2 up their game and hold onto their title as Kings of Europe?
What the teams are competing for
During the summer finals, the teams will be fighting to represent Europe at the 2017 World Championships in China. Last split, G2 convincingly beat Unicorns of Love in the finals, claiming their place as Spring split champions. This year, the competition is raised as Fnatic aims to retake their crown, with several hungry teams in their heels.

Group B: Unicorns of Love (4-2) infront of a tie between H2K (4-2) and Splyce (4-2).
