The League of Legends Pacific Championship Series (PCS) begins next year on 8 February 2020. Both the LoL Master Series (LMS) and LoL Southeast Asia Tour (LST) will be merged into the PCS. The tournament covers Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Southeast Asia.

Riot Games are working together with FunPlus Esports (owner of Worlds 2019 champion FunPlus Phoenix) and Garena to organise the tournament. The tournament will run in a best-of-one format and double-elimination playoffs. All the matches are planned to be hosted online due to the geographical diversity.

A total of ten teams will be taking part in the PCS. Here are the nine that have been revealed:

1. ahq eSports Club (Taipei)
