Earlier this year, Riot Games announced that the League Of Legends Worlds 2021 would take place in Shenzhen, China, starting from 6 November 2021. However, the location of the prestigious global esports tournament is officially changing from China to somewhere in Europe.
According to Riot Games Global Esports Head John Needham via a YouTube video, he said:
“We’ve reached the point where it’s extremely difficult to guarantee that qualifying teams and their best players would be able to attend Worlds this year.
After considering all possible options, we concluded that moving Worlds to Europe provided the best opportunity for the most teams and their best players to compete.”
However, Riot Games has yet to reveal where exactly in Europe the League Of Legends Worlds 2021. The location will be chosen based on “accessibility for the highest number of teams and their key players”. More details and information will likely be announced in the coming weeks and months ahead.
