The EU LCS Finals game of Schalke 04 Esports vs Fnatic is sold out – 11,000 people will attend the live event in the Palacio Vistalegre to watch their favorite EU LCS players battle it out. The venue is completely sold out for the game for 1st.
More than 7,000 tickets have been sold for the game for 3rd place between Misfits and Team Vitality.
The venue can hold up to 15,000 fans in theory, however the respective areas are closed during this time of the year.
Riot put a huge focus on getting more people inside the Finals venue this split: The tram stations of Madrid were plastered with posters of EU LCS players – including G2 esports members.
