Regional Leagues

Riot Games oversees all professional international competition for LoL Esports. Connected through 12 regional leagues from around the globe, more than 40 countries are represented in the highest level of LoL Esports competition. All regional leagues adhere to a similar regular season format, with each annual season divided into a first and second split. Splits consist of 8-9 weeks of regular play, followed by a playoff. Splits conclude with a play off tournament between the top teams. Teams earn prize money and their placement in playoffs can qualify them for the World Championship.
