League of Legends World Championships To Be Held In Europe

by on January 22, 2015

Riot has announced that the 2015 League of Legends World Championships will be held across Europe this October.

Last years Worlds were spread across southern Asia with the grand finals being held in Seoul. Samsung White ended up taking the $1million first prize with over 40,000 fans in attendance.

Riot said in a blog post that a similar format will be applied to this year’s Worlds, with the group stages, quarter finals, semi finals and final all taking place in differing locations across Europe.

Exact locations haven’t been announced, but with the success of last years LCS event at Wembley Arena it wouldn’t be a surprise to see at least one event take place in the UK.

If this has got you in the mood for some LCS then you are in look as the European arm kicks off tonight.
