LPL to host online scrim league amidst coronavirus hiatus

The LPL will host an online scrim league starting on Wednesday, Feb. 26 to appease eager League of Legends fans. 

The LPL has been on a temporary hiatus since January and has been forced to postpone its matches following the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. The virus has infected over 74,000 people in mainland China and has put the country on standstill for the past month.

“We have decided to postpone week 2 of the LPL until we can ensure the safety and health of our players and fans,” the LPL said on Jan. 26. The league has been on hold ever since, with little indication of its return. It looks like the LPL will remain postponed for the foreseeable future, or until the virus is finally contained. 

“We will be hosting an online scrims league starting the 26th,” the LPL said today. “Our primary concern is still keeping everyone safe but we are expecting some great entertaining matches.”
