It turns out that the 2022 League of Legends World Championships will take place in North America.
Chris Greely, LCS Commissioner at Riot Games, confirmed during an interview with content creator Travis Gafford that the wildly popular international tournament series would take place in several unannounced cities across the continent. Of course, this is all COVID-19 permitting, but all the same: it’s a huge deal! North America hasn’t hosted a League of Legends tournament of this scale since the 2016 World Championships in Los Angeles.
Check out the clip from Gafford’s interview where Greely breaks the news for yourself below.

There’s been plenty of fan speculation that the 2022 League of Legends World Championships would happen in the region already, but now it’s a certainty. No news just yet as to the cities hosting the events, but at least League of Legends fans in North America won’t have to travel far to attend this time.
