So what can you do in all this free time you ask? Well, I got just the answer for you: Watch the future stars of LEC already today in the European Regional Leagues! 13 current LEC players were in an EU Masters final before and how did they get there? By performing in their local ERL and qualifying for EU Masters. Most ERLs are currently about halfway through their split just like LEC with EUM starting in probably a bit more than a month (exact dates will be announced closer to the event). So where and when you can watch all of this you might ask? Well I can give a short rundown here, but for more information you best check the according Leaguepedia articles, the leagues' twitter accounts, check out the unofficial ERL and LEC discord below, check out my ERL timetable with links to all the streams and gamepedia pages or check out this wonderful thread by /u/megalodontus on twitter with lots of links to relevant twitter accounts.
Kicking the week off is the spanish Super Liga Orange with 5 matches starting at 18 CEST featuring aamongst others Giants facing the MAD academy team in game 5 on twitch. They close off their first round robin with two more gamedays on wednesday and thursday with the currently tied for first teams G2 Arctic and Vodafone Giants facing off.
Also starting at the same time, 18 CEST, the Greek Legends League starts into their final week of regular season with one playoff slot, both semifinal slots and most importantly a spot directly in the groupstage of EU Masters for the winner of the regular season still up for grabs. Current fronrunners for the 1st place Intrepid Fox Gaming have to face two playoff teams this week to keep their spot at the top, while the two second place teams Game Changers and WLGaming Esports will fight for the bye (and maybe even 1st if IFG stumbles) in a direct head to head tomorrow. The matches are live on twitch.
Just one hour later, at 19 CEST the Balkan EBL kicks off week 3 with newcomers CR4ZY sitting undefeated at the top 4-0. On thursday the currently tied for second place and previous EBL representatives at EUM, CZV and SuppUp eSports face each other to see who can stay at the top of the table.

Starting at 19 CEST as well is the Belgian League with their top team and spring EUM representatives Sector One still having a firm grasp on the league having locked in for playoffs already, but they DID lose a game last week and this week they are facing the current second place team KV Mechelen Esports, so there is certainly some tension as to if S1 can keep on winning. Also the fight for playoffs is super close with 3 teams sitting tied at 2 wins for the last spot and ATR just one win ahead. Watch the games on twitch indutch and french.
And for the late birds (or just people living in an earlier timezone than CEST), there's the portuguese LPLOL starting at 21 CEST with a match of first place Electronik Generation vs second place SAMCLAN Esports Club to close out the week tomorrow at midnight. The games are streamed on twitch.
Tomorrow, there is just as much action and it kicks off early with the polish Ultraliga starting at 17.30 CEST. AGO Rogue is sitting comfortably at the top with a 7-1 record, followed by a new team in Komputronik H34T sitting just one win behind them. EUM finalists K1CK Neosurf sit in a 3-way tie for 3rd with Pompa and Illuminar, looking to show a better performance in the second round robin. The matches are streamed on twitch and

Current frontrunners Team GamerLegion have to face EURONICS Gaming tomorrow and second place FC Schalke 04 Evolution on thursday. There's going to be plenty of action and plenty of pocket picks all week with even winless SK Gaming Prime not looking totally hopeless. Tune in on
