It must be said that in the past the LEC had always had a greater following than the American one, but in the last 2 years eSports in America have grown considerably and many were ready to bet that the gap had closed.

In contrast, the LCS has an average of 142,099 spectators, with a peak of 241,472 concurrent spectators and almost 6.9 million hours watched. LEC had 50% more audience in Spring 2021 than LCS. According to some experts, the reason is to be found in the poor performance of Team Liquid, the most loved team in the United States.

Others argue that the time change has had a great influence. Before, in fact, the matches were at a time that even European fans could watch the LCS while now with the start of the matches postponed it has made it virtually impossible for Europeans to watch the games live. The other reason could be the continued growth of Call of Duty in America, which continues to grow and attract more fans.
