Less than a month after concluding its 2021 Worlds event in Iceland where EDG took home the victory, Riot Games is now looking forward to the League of Legends 2022 World Championship, announcing that it’ll be the first-ever multi-city tournament.

Spreading across four parts of North America, next year’s championship will take place in Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena, New York’s Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden, San Francisco’s Chase Center, and Mexico City’s Liga Latinoamerica arena. Aside from being the first of its kind to run concurrently at numerous cities, the 2022 occasion will also mark the first return to the North American region for the first time since 2016.

“The momentum behind League of Legends Esports has only continued to grow since the last time we hosted Worlds in the U.S. in 2016. We’re thrilled to bring the full scale of our global sport back to North America, and, COVID permitting, welcome fans into the stands across three countries and four different cities,” said Naz Aletaha, the global head of League of Legends esports. “Worlds is the showcase of the greatest of our sport, and we look forward to celebrating that with our fans in North America and across the world.”

There are currently no official dates for the event just yet, so fans of the game should stay tuned for more updates to come.

Elsewhere in esports, HYPEBEAST recently caught up with Bugha, the world’s best Fortnite solos player.
