News | All teams qualified for the 2021 League of Legends World Championship
The stage is set for the 2021 League of Legends World Championship.
For the second year running, the end-of-year event will take place in China. The multi-city tour will include five distinct cities from Shanghai in the opening stage of the tournament to Shenzhen in the finals.
“We’ve locked in the five Chinese cities after an extremely competitive bidding process, and we’re now ready to deliver on our promise to players with a multi-city tour for the biggest esports event on the planet,” Riot’s head of esports John Needham said in June.
Worlds 2021 will bring together the top teams from 12 regional leagues to compete for the Summoner’s Cup. At its full capacity, the 60,000-seat Universiade Sports Centre in Shenzhen will be host to the finals on Nov. 6.
All in all, 24 teams will compete at the event, including four teams from China and Korea, three teams from Europe and North America, two teams from Taiwan and Vietnam, and one team from CIS, Latin America, Turkey, Brazil, Japan, and Oceania. – DOT ESPORTS
