qualified teams

The League of Legends World Championship qualifiers has commenced with the Championship just around the corner. Several teams have already made it through the qualifiers in a span of a month, and the pro teams for the main event will be confirmed by September.

The Worlds 2022 is taking place in North America this year, which will be hosted by LCS once again after six years. Worlds 2022 might be a big deal for Leagues fans, as all event stages will be open to a live audience for the first time.

The Worlds 2022 itinerary through North America will be as follows- the play-in stage will take place in Mexico City, the group stage in New York City, the semifinals in Atlanta, Georgia, and the finals of the World 2022 will end in San Francisco, California.
