League Of Legends Worlds 2020 Broke Viewership Records

This year marked the tenth World Championship in League of Legends competitive history, and it certainly was a memorable one.

The event kicked off with Play-Ins at the Shanghai Media Tech Center, introducing a mixed reality stage that allowed us to travel virtually through the elements and bring the city of  Shanghai indoors.

Over the course of 38 Play-In matches, fans watched 160.92 million hours of play, a 61.76 percent increase from the same period in 2019, and the AMA  increased 87.18 percent year on year to 3.6 million. 

In total, the 2020 Worlds Championship recorded more than one billion hours watched, which is the highest ever for a Worlds championship in ten years of League Of Legends.

The newly-built SAIC Motor Pudong Arena welcomed 6,312 live fans after 3,205,750 people (all who needed to be a Level 30 player or higher) who registered to come see the show live. 

This year, the world saw the first-ever Finals Pentakill, which was impressively pulled off by Suning’s Bin on Fiora. The Finals Pentakill is the first ever seen in a Finals match, and the twelfth overall in Worlds history.  

Despite this memorable victory in Game 2 of the Finals, Suning eventually was overtaken by DAMWON Gaming for the World Championship title in a 3-1 victory.

The Finals were broadcast in 16 languages and across 21 platforms. In total, the Worlds Championship Finals hit a record-breaking 23.04 Million Average Minute Audience (AMA) and 45.95 million Peak Concurrent Users.

There was also zero positive tests for COVID-19 among the players after more than a month of the competition.
