The 2022 League of Legends World Championship dates and its seeds has been announced today. Riot Games has just released the key dates for the company’s flagship tournament. Worlds this year will take place in North America and will be played in four different cities. On top of that, it has now been confirmed how the regions will be seeded for the event.

Here are the key dates for the 2022 League of Legends World Championship:

Over the last two years, Europe has performed well internationally, reaching multiple top eight finishes at Worlds and multiple top four finishes at MSI.
