The European League of Legends scene has been going strong this season. Following it's rebranding from European League of Legends Championship Series (EU LCS) to League of Legends European Championship (LEC), viewership has been on the rise. 

In just the first three weeks, Summer Split has seen a 37% increase in viewers from last year, gaining a weekly Average Minute Audience (total number of fans watching the show at the same time) of 136,000. This makes it the most viewed Summer Split since 2015. Similarly, LEC Spring Split 2019 gained 50% growth mid-Split from last year and by week 9, it had over 355,000 concurrent viewers. These numbers naturally beat 2015 numbers too. 

European League of Legends has seen growth in the number of great teams and talented players competing in it which has naturally translated into exciting content. G2 Esports and Fnatic, the top teams in the standings have both shown their dominance internationally, but the other teams aren't giving up so easily, making for exciting matches and great entertainment. With weeks ahead before the end, it remains to be seen if viewership will beat LEC Spring Split numbers.
