The LCK schedule is finally out as teams look to shoot for the coveted LCK championship title.

The 2022 LCK Spring Split schedule is set to begin on January 12th as Season 12 of competitive League of Legends looks to reignite the year with the LCK.

The new LCK schedule will feature a different format compared to the past. The LCK schedule will shift to an ongoing five-day schedule that runs from Wednesday to Sunday each week. Each team will play matches on two of these days and have off-days on Monday and Tuesday. 

Who is opening the LCK Spring Split?

The very first day of the 2022 LCK Spring Split will start with the new and improved DRX team, featuring a newly minted star botlane comprised of Deft and former DWG.KIA support Beryl. They will match up against Liiv SANDBOX who enter 2022 with an entirely new look, aside from returning 2021 jungler Croco.

Following that opening matchup, LCK fans will be treated to a marquee matchup between former T1 teammates Gumayusi and Teddy, after the latter left to join Kwangdong Freecs.

LCK enters 2022 looking to regain glory after falling short of a World Championship title in 2021 despite, having three LCK teams in the 2021 Worlds Semifinals. Following DWG.KIA’s narrow loss to LPL team Edward Gaming in the finals, LCK is ready to regain a fresh start, with each team having their own stories to reach the top.

For now, LCK fans can support their favorite teams by going to, and find the mobile backgrounds for each team’s round 1 schedule.
