World Championship for 2015 - To Be Held in Europe!



Earlier today, Riot officially announced that the 2015 World Championship will take place back where it first began...Europe! While no official country has been named host yet, check out the official details below!

Official Post:

After sharing a memorable 2014 Championship with truly incredible esports fans in Taipei, Singapore, and Korea, we’re looking forward to 2015’s final showdown more than ever. Today, before the LCS season kickoff, we’re excited to announce that the 2015 World Championship will be coming to Europe this October.

We can’t wait to head to Europe and bring the best League of Legends pro teams from around the world to fans across multiple cities and countries. Europe has been a home for LoL esports since the very first steps in our journey. It’s the setting for the EU LCS, the host for many memorable esports tournaments and events, (including our inaugural World Championship in 2011, IEM, Dreamhack, and last year’s All Star tournament) and the home of some of the most talented players to dominate the game. It feels great to bring the 2015 Championship back to players and fans who have played such a big part in our story.

Continuing a pattern we began last year, Worlds 2015 will be a multi-city, multi-country event -- with our Group Stage, Quarterfinals, Semifinals, and Final showdown held in different cities within Europe. Our goal is to bring live esports action to a broad base of fans across Europe and to provide an exciting and diverse backdrop for fans watching at home. Last year’s multi-city journey to Worlds was a fast-paced and exhilarating ride - we learned a ton about the kind of experience we want to offer to competing pros, fans in the stadiums, and viewers at home. We’re ready for an action-packed month in Europe.

It’s still too early to share exact details -- we're currently confirming venues, timing, format, and more -- and we’ll be sharing those details in the next few months. In the meantime, tune in to cheer on your favorite LCS teams this week as they take their first steps towards Worlds 2015.

For players in Europe and beyond, we can’t wait for you to join us on this journey. See you at Worlds!

  3. If they limit to do the finals in the United Kingdom, Riot will run up with issues. I mean, the U.K. has so many visa restrictions that people from LAN, NA, KR South Asia and beyond who wants to be there, will not be able to due to limitations from the Home Office.

  4. Well, now I have no excuse, if it's not too far I'll go
