The LEC will be implementing a new league-wide age limit for 2023 and beyond

The youth movement has always been a topic that has been discussed in the League of Legends scene since most teams are constantly looking for the next great player in the game’s history. In Europe, the LEC has seen many young prospects enter and leave through its doors. But in 2023, a new rule change will be shifting the scene in terms of roster creation and more.

In a new blog post, Riot Games outlined today that the minimum age requirement for any player participating in the LEC will now be increased from 17 years old to 18 years old “to help unlock new sponsorship opportunities for teams.”
