League of Legends team Fnatic will face off against Team Vitality Sunday in the first round of LEC playoffs. Shortly before this pivotal match, Fnatic has announced some news to its fans that may come as a shock. The Fnatic rookie top laner Adam "Adam" Maanane has tested positive for COVID 19 and will therefore play the match remotely while the rest of the team will play together in-person.

According to the announcement, Adam tested positive right after the Summer split ended but is recovering well. The rest of the team was able to get tested soon and fortunately, the Fnatic team did not receive any additional positive cases.

In collaboration with Riot Games, both Fnatic and Team Vitality have gone forward with agreeing to neither team playing in the studio for this weekend's match. Instead, both teams will play remotely while Adam plays separately from his team as well.

The rest of the broadcast should continue as normal. As of now, no other teams have brought forward any concerns with being able to play in person at the Berlin studio this weekend. Hopefully, this remains the same as teams continue to compete for Worlds qualification.
