League of Legends Worlds 2022 is coming: Here's what you need to know, including streams, the format and schedule, and teams playing.

The League of Legends World Championship is upon us for another year — Worlds 2022 will take place across North America as the world’s best 24 teams battle it out for the coveted Summoner’s Cup. Here’s what you need to know.

  • Worlds 2022 groups drawn as regional qualifiers wrap up
  • LEC granted a fourth seed for the second time in Worlds history
  • Semifinals moved from Toronto to Atlanta due to visa issues

Worlds is the single biggest event in the League of Legends calendar — and this year it’s going on the road again. Each leg of the tournament will take place in a different city.

It will also be the first Worlds to have a full in-person audience capacity at every stage of the competition since the tour of Europe 2019.

Plenty of familiar faces will be attempting to lift League of Legends’ most coveted trophy, the Summoner’s Cup, which has received a face lift for 2022. Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok’s T1 obviously headlines the act, but defending champions EDward Gaming are back after missing MSI 2022, while Cloud9 stunned North America to emerge as the LCS’ best hope.

Colin Young-Wolff for Riot GamesRNG, who won MSI 2022 remotely, scraped into Worlds qualification.

For everything you need to know about League of Legends Worlds 2022, we’ve got you covered right here with all the details on the format, schedule and results, teams, and more.

LoL Worlds 2022: All qualified teams

Riot GamesReigning world champions EDward Gaming will have a chance to defend their crown.

24 teams from 11 regions across the world will battle it out at Worlds 2022. With the LCL unable to send a representative to the tournament this year, their seed has been given to the LEC — making it the only major region to have two representatives in the Play-In stage.

The top 12 qualifying teams at the tournament will advance straight to the group stage. The remaining 12 will battle their way through the Play-In stage for a chance to snatch one of the four remaining group stage spots available.
