Dates & Seeding For 2022 LoL World Championship Have Been Announced
We finally have some more information on this year’s League of Legends World Championship circuit, set to take place across North America.
Riot Games has come out and announced that Worlds is set to start on 29 September and will culminate the grand finals on 5 November. The Play-In stage will take place in Mexico City at the Arena Esports Stadium from 29 September to 4 October. Following this, the remainder of the competition will be moved to the United States, starting with Madison Square Garden in New York City between 7 October to 16 October for the group stage. Quarterfinals will also be held in Madison Square Garden from 20 to 23 October.
The semifinals will take place on 29 to 30 October as the competition heads south to Atlanta, Georgia’s State Farm Arena with the grand finals taking place in San Francisco’s Chase Stadium on 5 November.
The company also revealed the seedings for the upcoming event, following a similar pattern from previous iterations of Worlds. Of the 24 teams that qualify for Worlds, 12 will have to qualify for the group stage by making it through the play-in stage, while the other 12 will qualify directly to the group stage.
Notably, however, the LCL will be unable to send representatives to this year’s Worlds. In their spot, the LEC is gaining one extra slot for a total of four, now on par with both the LPL and the LCK. The LCS trails behind them with three representatives.
Information regarding tickets for the various parts of Worlds 2022 has not yet been revealed but is expected to be announced in the near future. Players can look forward to the international League competition coming together on the biggest stage of the year starting 29 September.
