The LJL's improved level of competition was demonstrated to the world.
This year is the first time for the LJL to participate in the group stage, and it is expected that this will lead to more exchanges with overseas teams. If the level of the LJL improves as a result, it will be possible for the team to advance past the group stage.
Although this year's result was disappointing, it was the first time for the LJL to advance to the group stage, and it was certainly a year that will lead to the future development of the LJL. We look forward to LJL's future progress!
