The COVID-19 pandemic has made things very much tricky for esports titles worldwide to host events on LAN, as everything needs to go online. Though Worlds 2020 was hosted offline at the Shanghai Media Tech Studios, it will not have the same magic and energy as it was last year.
There will be a lack of audience due to the covid pandemic but there was indeed a slight gloom over proceedings, and Riot will be looking to change all this time around. The League of Legends Worlds Championship 2021 is going to held in the Shenzhen Universiade Sports Centre on November 6th, where the best teams in the world will fight against each other.
“We’re extremely excited to push the boundaries of entertainment and sport this year with the Worlds 2021 and define the next ten years of LoL Esports. Shenzhen is China’s most competitive and innovative city, with thousands of high-tech startups and entrepreneurial pursuits, so we felt that it was the perfect landscape to host our Finals.”John Needham, Global Head of Esports for Riot Games, stated that
There are still few things that need to be revealed by League of Legends devs about the schedule or the event, fans are pretty excited for this year’s end-of-season spectacle. We will see some of the best teams in the world fighting each other for a shot at the championship. Riot has also said that it will be revealing more information on the World Championship later.
The initial prize money of the 2021 League of Legends World Championship is $2,225,000. But it will surely increase with the in-game item sales which will be contributing to the pool later this year.
