League of Legends Esports is kicking off the much-awaited Summer Split for 2022 across different regions very soon.
Korea's LCK is kicking off its Summer Split on 15th June and the league has released the full schedule spanning nine weeks of action.
Here are all the players that have been confirmed in the starting rosters across all ten teams.

The League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) is kicking off its 2022 Summer Split on 15th June. Most people expected the split to start a week earlier than the actual start date but with the 2022 Asian Games standing indefinitely postponed, the LCK has gone with 15th June. As usual, the teams competing in the LCK and the LCK Challengers League (LCK CL) submitted their finalized rosters ahead of the upcoming split.

On 3rd June, the league wrote on Twitter, “As 2022 Summer is fast approaching, each of our teams has submitted their rosters for the upcoming split!” From a glance at the submitted rosters, it is evident that the majority of the teams are sticking with their Spring rosters without any big rejigs.

Teams competing in LCK 2022 Summer Split

The following are the organizations that have fielded teams in the LCK and the LCK CL:

  • Fredit BRION (BRO)

  • Damwon Kia (DK)

  • DRX

  • Gen.G (GEN)

  • Hanwha Life Esports (HLE)

  • Kwangdong Freecs (KDF)

  • KT Rolster (KT)

  • Liiv Sandbox (LSB)

  • Nongshim Redforce (NS)

  • T1

With this being the last split before the World Championship, teams will be looking forward to giving it their all. It seems like the LCK will get four teams competing at Worlds. The LCK 2022 Summer Split is the second split of the 2022 competitive season and the second year of Korea's professional league under the partnership program.

The LCK is a league that has best-of-threes (BO3s) in the regular split and the playoff matches will be best-of-five (BO5s). Even though the top six teams qualify for the playoffs, the top two teams get a bye to the semifinals directly.
