The Season 3 League of Legends World Championship will take place in the City of Angels later this year. The global stage for the League of Legends eSports tournament will begin on September 16th with the 14 best teams from North America, Korea, China, Southeast Asia, Europe, and an international wild-card face off for a month of competition with the semi-finals being held at the Galen Center in Southern California for the overall season prize pool of $8 million.
Once the dust has settled and the two victorious winning teams stand over the smoldering corpses of their fallen opponents (dramatic, I know), the two finalists will head to the final stage of competition at the Staple Center in Los Angeles, California on October 4th to compete in the World Championship for the Summoner’s Cup and a prize of $1 million in cold, hard cash.
A few key facts to keep in mind from the official press release:
