Naz Aletaha, Global Head of LoL Esports, expressed excitement about bringing the event to London, highlighting the city’s rich history and modern atmosphere as a fitting backdrop for the pinnacle of League of Legends competition.
“We’re thrilled to bring the World Final to the UK for the first time. Worlds is a global celebration of the best of League of Legends, and London’s rich history and modern metropolis is a perfect backdrop for the biggest stage in our sport. We were blown away by the passion and energy from fans in London throughout the 2023 Mid-Season Invitational, and we’re eager to welcome them to the O2 where our finalists will take the same stage as the many icons who preceded them.”
– Naz Aletaha, Global Head of LoL Esports
Aletaha mentioned the impressive enthusiasm of London fans during the 2023 Mid-Season Invitational, held at the Copper Box Arena in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, which experienced a significant 58% increase in viewership compared to MSI 2022. The last time the UK hosted a Worlds event was in the Quarterfinals in 2015 at the SSE Arena in Wembley, now known as the OVO Arena Wembley.
The O2, with its colossal dome structure and a seating capacity that ranks second in the UK, has a stellar reputation for hosting iconic artists, bands, and major sporting events, such as NBA games and ATP tennis season finales. The venue is set to provide the stage for the League of Legends finalists, following in the footsteps of legendary performers like Adele, Beyoncé, and U2.
Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, expressed enthusiasm about London being a leading destination for esports and welcomed the opportunity to host the League of Legends World Championship Finals in 2024. He sees it as a chance to unite esports fans globally and showcase the capital’s cutting-edge gaming industry.
“London is a leading destination for esports, and it’s fantastic that we will host the League of Legends World Championship Finals next year. It will bring together esports fans from across the globe and also showcase our capital’s cutting edge gaming industry. I will continue to do all I can to support esports development and growth in London, as we build a better London for everyone.”
– Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London
The event is scheduled for 2 November 2024, at The O2, and details about ticket sales will be announced later in 2024. Additional information about dates, cities, and venues for Worlds 2024 will be disclosed soon.
