South Korean operator SK Telecom, an official sponsor for '2020 League of Legends Champions Korea Spring', has launched a service for esports fans. The service targets esports fans who cannot visit stadiums in-person as the competition was held behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic. For the final match between T1 and Gen-G, SK Telecom placed life-sized cardboard photos of fans in the stands to make the fans feel more engaged. The fans were able to participate in this event by uploading their photos to SK Telecom's Jump AR app.
