The LCS Spring final between Cloud9 and Golden Guardians was the least-watched grand final in the history of the league.

Sunday’s title decider drew an online peak viewership of only 271,376 people, according to statistics website Esports Charts. This makes it the least popular LCS final and the only one in the league’s history that couldn’t even crack the 300,000 mark in peak viewership.

The Spring split as a whole had a total of 14.8 million hours watched, down 22 percent from the 19 million hours watched in LCS Summer 2022, which had already posted some of the league’s worst viewership stats.

Saturday’s lower bracket final, between Golden Guardians and FlyQuest, and the grand final were the only two matches that surpassed the 200,000 mark in peak viewership during the Spring split, which averaged 109,759 viewers – the lowest tally since Esports Charts began tracking viewership for LCS tournaments, in 2017.

The LCS Spring is in line to be outpaced by Brazil’s CBLOL, whose Spring Split is averaging 109,670 viewers. Ahead of Saturday’s grand final, between LOUD and paiN, the league’s peak viewership stands at 239,684 viewers.

The LCS’ viewership struggles come amid sweeping changes in the league’s landscape, with CLG having been acquired by NRG and TSM reportedly looking to sell their spot. And there are rumors that other organizations are also considering exiting the league.

Last week, former League of Legends caster Christopher ‘MonteCristo’ Mykles said that the LCS is considering emulating the LEC’s format in an effort to give the league a jolt of electricity and get viewers to tune back in. Contacted by Dexerto, the LCS said that “no decision has been made” regarding the format for 2024.
