24 of the best teams in the world will compete over the course of several weeks in an attempt to establish their names in the history books of League esports. The tournament will begin with the play-in stage, where only four out of 12 teams can earn a spot in the group stage.
After the event, the teams and 12 other group stage competitors will battle for their place in the playoffs. Each team will compete in a single-elimination format bracket, with the final team winning the Summoners Cup.
