The League of Legends Champions Korea 2016 Spring Finals will be played in the Olympics Gymnastics Arena in Seoul, OGN announced Monday.

The arena was also the venue for the 2014 League of Legends World Championships Semifinals, and seats 15,000 people.

The LCK 2016 Spring Playoffs begin on April 13, as five teams compete for the approximately $85,000 grand prize and a jackpot of 90 circuit points that could help qualify the winning team for the 2016 League World Championship.

While most of the teams in the playoffs have yet to be determined, the ROX Tigers have already clinched first place in the regular season, meaning the other four teams will be fighting their way up the ladder for a chance to play against the Tigers in the Grand Finals.

With only one week left in the season, however, both SBENU Sonicboom and Kongdoo Monster are locked into finishing in the Bottom 2, and will be playing in a relegation tournament instead.

Finals venues have already been determined for the NA and EU LCS. The North American LCS 2016 Spring Finals will be held at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas Nevada, and the European LCS 2016 Spring Finals will be at the Rotterdam Ahoy in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
