The EU LCS schedule kicks off Thursday with a match between two qualifiers from last year’s League of Legends World Championship.

The European League of Legends Championship Series summer split opens with H2K and Splyce on Thursday in the EU LCS studio in Berlin, Germany, and will be broadcast on Twitch. The summer split will conclude on Aug. 13, with two games each day, three days per week except for Weeks 2, 7 and 10, which will have four days of competition. There will be no games between July 1 and 13, as the newly-announced international event “Rift Rivals” will take place from July 3-9.

Notable summer split matches include G2 Esports and Unicorns of Love, the finalists of the spring split playoffs, on June 23. G2 has been at the top of European League of Legends for quite some time without much competition, having won three splits in a row. But the Unicorns seemed to have been a good match against the champions in the spring. As G2 returned from Brazil after a runner-up finish at the Mid-Season Invitational, the Unicorns returned to Europe after a bootcamp in Korea.

Another match that will grab the attention is when Mysterious Monkeys and Ninjas in Pyjamas play June 29, as both teams are new to the European LCS after purchasing the spots of Misfits Academy and Fnatic Academy. Ninjas in Pyjamas specifically is of interest as the organization has returned to League of Legends for the first time in three years with a roster that includes former SK Telecom T1 former top laner Kim “Profit” Jun-hynug.
