League of Legends 2020 World Championship start on September 25!

The announcement just fell: the 2020 League of Legends World Championship will take place — and this even if the coronavirus continues to represent a threat.

In order to ensure the safety of the players as well as the personnel involved in the organization of the competition, Riot Games has decided that the tournament will be held entirely in Shanghai, thus allowing officials to "to more closely control the show environment."

The best players and teams from around the world will come together from September 25 to October 31, yet their first clashes will not take place in front of an audience. Riot wants to focus on the “digital viewer experiences”. If we obviously remember the Elder Dragon in 2017, or more simply the True Damage holograms last year, it was hard to imagine what trick the Californian company still has up its sleeve ...

Shanghai will host the 2020 Worlds, Covid forces, the competition will be far from resembling what it could have. For this reason, Riot Games has decided that the 2021 edition will be held again in China, so as to be able to implement the plans and crazy ideas originally planned. As a result, the World Championship will not return to North America until 2022.

Riot Games announce the end of its partnership with NEOM

The Californian company terminated the agreement between the futuristic mega-city and the LEC, just twelve hours after announcing its signing.
