LoL World Championship 2021 Begins Today!

Posted by George Wong on October 5, 2021

League of Legends fans have been waiting for this all year, the ultimate showdown between the best teams in the world for the only title that matters - the one with all the bragging rights, the world championship! Initially announced to be in China and then relocated to Iceland, the tournament will kick off this evening, starting with the play-ins.

Play-In Teams:

Group A

  • Hanwha Life Esports (KR)
  • Infinity Esports (LAT)
  • LNG Esports (CN)
  • RED Canids (BR)

Group B

  • Beyond Gaming (PCS)
  • Cloud9 (NA)
  • DetonatioN FocusMe (JP)

Day 1 schedule

The teams will play every other team in their group in a best-of-one format. The top team in each group will advance to the main event, while the 2nd-4th place teams will have to go through a knockout stage to secure the remaining last 2 slots.

Which team will make it through? Will we see the favourites, HLE and LNG breeze through the play-ins, or will it be a tale of the dark horse? Only one way to find out.

The Play-ins will take place from 5-9 October, starting at 7 PM (GMT +8) so we'll know all the teams at the main event by the end of this week. Make sure to catch all the action, live on eGG Network TV or at LoL Esports. More info.
