For the 2022 League of Legends World Championship, every team has qualified.
Teams from all across the world are starting to qualify for the 2022 League of Legends World Championship, which will take place in less than a month. The top teams in pro League will secure their berths in the World Championship from August through September.
This year, Worlds will take place once more in North America, with the LCS serving as the host league for the first time since the 2016 campaign. Additionally, spectators will be able to attend all World Championship stages for the first time since 2019 during this year’s competition. Fans have not been permitted at Worlds since a small number of spectators were let into the Grand Finals in 2020 between China’s Suning and Korea’s DAMWON Gaming.
The play-in stage of Worlds will be held in Mexico City, the group stage in New York City, the semifinals in Atlanta, Georgia, and the event’s finals will be held in San Francisco, California, this year.
With the exception of the LCL, every domestic league in the globe will send a participant to this year’s Worlds. At the World Championship, 24 teams from 11 leagues will take part in total.
