On 18th March, Riot Games and Vietnam Championship Series (VCS) announced the indefinite postponement of the remainder of the VCS 2024 Spring Split due to an internal investigation into some of the teams participating in the league. The VCS said that the split would be postponed indefinitely due to a possible breach of competitive integrity and also cancelled the matches and results of Week 8.

The VCS investigated into all eight participating teams in the league including Cerberus, GAM Esports, MGN Blue Esports, Rainbow Warriors, Team Flash, Team Secret, Team Whales, and Vikings Esports. Following this, the league released a list of all pro players who are temporarily suspended in light of the investigations.


Pro Players Temporarily Suspended From Competing in the VCS

After indefinitely postponing the Spring Split, the VCS released a list of pro players who have been temporarily suspended after an official investigation concerning several teams in the league. On 28th March, VCS officials announced a list of 32 players and personnel suspended due to the VCS Spring 2024 investigations.

The league however clarified that this is not the definitive list of suspension as it stated all 32 individuals are under "temporarily suspend" for the investigations.

The temporarily suspended players are also banned from engaging in Riot Games esports which includes tournaments hosted by third parties. It was also made clear that the suspension will last until the investigation is complete, and the VCS will not resume until it is fully done.
