The most successful region in the history of League of Legends esports, the League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK), announced significant changes to its 2023 season last year in November. Starting with the Spring split in January 2023, the playoffs will follow a double-elimination format and the LCK will also allow the teams to integrate their rosters with their Challengers League (CL) teams. The first split of 2023, the LCK Spring Split 2023, is all set to kick off on 18th January and the region announced its full schedule. 

While Riot Games changed the schedule for most of its regions in LoL Esports, the LCK’s schedule remains pretty much the same. Starting with the LCK Spring Split 2023, the league will have new start times but the weekly schedule remains unchanged. Match 2 on weekdays will shift 30 minutes earlier from 8 pm KST to 7.30 pm KST. On the weekends, Match 1 will be moved from 5 pm KST to 3 pm KST and Match 2 will be moved from 8 pm KST to 5.30 pm KST.
