The League of Legends World Championship 2019 in Paris

Posted on: Nov 02, 2018 By smartlaunch in Uncategorized,

Riot Games has detailed the next three League of Legends World Championships regions. Europe will host in 2019, China in 2020, and North America in 2021. 2019’s finals venue has also been announced—the AccorHotels Arena in Paris, France.

Riot’s World Championship events have become some of the most definitive events within esports. For many years, it was the highest-viewed event across the entire industry. As one of the first major international championships, it also served to model practices in several other areas: prize pool distribution, integration of multiple regions, non-endemic sponsorship, and utilization of traditional sports venues.

The biggest news in this release, however, is the return to China in 2020. The previous visit in 2017 saw record milestones in terms of viewership with more than 80M viewers of the semifinal round. 2020 will also be the 10th anniversary of the World Championships.
