MarkZ named new commissioner of LCS

Riot Games has finally decided on the next person to help lead its professional North American League of Legends scene—and it’s someone fans all over the world will recognize for his presence within the scene over the past decade.

Through both a press release and a video detailing what the LCS will look like for the 2024 season, Riot announced today that Mark “MarkZ” Zimmerman is stepping into the role of commissioner following previous work in nearly all levels of the LCS—both in front of and behind the camera. This comes after the long search for a new person to fill the role following the departure of previous commissioner Jackie Felling, who pioneered a new era of the LCS with a focus on more interactivity during the broadcast between players, talent, and fans.
