League of Legends World Championship coming to US

Riot reveals League World Championship details.

With the new season of League of Legends well under way, Riot has released details for the up and coming World Championship series in a blog post on their website. In said post, Riot revealed that the World Championship tournament will be making a road trip this year, as they hold each stage of the tourney in different arenas around the country. 

This is similar to what Riot did for last year's tournament, except in Europe. They took a 'road trip' across the continent and played in countries such as Paris, England, and Belgium. It makes sense that they would now do the same with the United States. 

The following is the schedule that Riot has decided upon: 

  • Group Stage: September 29-October 2 + October 6-9 at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, CA
  • Quarterfinals: October 13-16 at The Chicago Theatre in Chicago, IL
  • Semifinals: October 21-22 at Madison Square Garden in New York, NY
  • Finals: October 29 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA

No ticket information is available at this time; however, Riot mentioned we can expect more details this summer. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for all the latest updates and coverage of this event when it rolls around.

Hi! My name is Nick, and I am yet another kid trying to break into the world of gaming journalism. I am currently attending grad school and pursuing my Master's in Journalism. Want to know my favorite game? It's Mass Effect, but not the third one; we don't talk about that one. I am also an avid fan of any and all board games, and you should totally try Risk Legacy; it's like regular Risk but better.
