Riot announced on 9th September that the League of Legends World Championship will be held in Reykjavik, Iceland between October 5th and November 6th. 

  • LoL World Championship will move from China to Iceland 
  • The tournament will be held without a live audience
  • 22 teams will compete for the total prize pool of $2,225,000 USD 

Earlier this year, Riot held its League’s Mid-Season Invitational in Iceland and decided to hold the entirety of Worlds there. 

The decision came after the event had an amazing influx of positive responses. This year’s World Championship was planned to be held in China, with various stages being held in Shanghai, Qingdao, Wuhan, Chengdu, and Shenzhen.

Last Month Riot announced that the tournament will move from China to Europe, due to Covid-19 concerns. Although it was moved to Iceland, the event will still not have a live audience. 

This year’s World Championship marks the latest opening date in this tournament’s history. The usual starting date was in the last week of September. 

The event will start with the play-in stage on 5th October, but the main event is set to start on October 11th. The grand finals will be held on 6th November. 

This tournament was supposed to have 24 teams but unfortunately, due to travel restrictions, the two teams from the VCS cannot participate in League’s World Championship.

The 22 teams will compete for the total prize pool of $2,225,000 USD

Some of the teams participating in the World Championship are Cloud 9, Mad Lions, Fnatic, T1, and Team Liquid

More details about the matches will be announced soon by Riot.
