Before the start of the summer season of SPL, KeSPA, Riot, and OGN formally signed a memorandum of cooperation. The attendance of this signing ceremony includes KeSPA's president (the congressman), Riot Asian president, and other leaders.
In the near future, KeSPA's Proleague will very likely to incorporate League of Legends completely. This issue has been under negotiation, and it represents the start of a new era.
In the meanwhile, the possibility of holding global tournaments in Korea has been discussed. Also, KeSPA's president mentioned that two more KeSPA's teams will be formed in the future. This probably means the complete involvement of all KeSPA's teams into LoL.
Different from the OGN LoL Champions, Proleague will be a long-term tournament with greater scale. However, because this is KeSPA's tournament under KeSPA's system, and plus the high criteria of entering KeSPA, the involvement of teams such as MVP, LGIM, and Najin is still under negotiation.
KeSPA's president also indicated that next season's LoL Champions will return to the "memorable" place. People have speculated that it's the Gwangalli_Beach.
Now, OGN has held some amateur tournaments. And they will hold more semi-professional tournaments in the future as well.
When talking about the future, they hope LoL will be like a professional sport to attract more investment and provide more insurance to professional players. Riot's representative said that holding global tournaments in Korea is like holding world cup in Brazil--it's crazily good. They hope regions will have more cooperation.
