The Challenger Series is the path that teams take to get from Challenger rank on the Ranked Ladder into the LCS.

The Championship series is the "actual" LCS in which teams that have made it into the LCS, such as through the Challenger Series or through having sufficient rank in the previous season's LCS, compete against each other. LCS Stands for League of Legends Championship Series.
