Honda giving away a car
In what feels like a dream scenario for any LCS fan, Honda will announce the results of the LCS Super Fan contest during broadcast. Here, the winner will take home the Honda Civic Type R Infernal Drake.
Leading up to the 2021 LCS Championships, fans are given the opportunity to nominate someone for the LCS Super Fan and the custom Type R that goes along with it. After multiple different nominations, the community eventually widdled that number down to four candidates.
The Honda Civic Type R Infernal Drake will be shown around the event during the livestream among other Honda x LCS models throughout the event. By the end, the lucky LCS Super Fan will be leaving the weekend with a brand new car.
The 2021 LCS Championships weekend will begin on Saturday, August 28 at 5pm EST. Cloud9 and 100 Thieves will face off in the loser’s bracket. The winner will meet Team Liquid in the grand finals on Sunday.
