League of Legends Worlds 2021: All teams that qualified for the international event

League of Legends Worlds 2021 is finally a list of teams that will compete for the crown of the best teams in the world.

It was a long journey to every region of the world. Every team and player was struggling with Covid-19 and faced many difficulties to get there.

It involves hours of training, grit and practice to win the top 3 or 4 spots in the playoffs and secure seats to the biggest stage League of Legends has to offer. However, it’s finally done and now the teams can travel to Europe to start preparing to solve the final piece of the puzzle.

League of Legends World 2021 was to be held in China. However, travel restrictions and visa issues force Riot Games to move the location to Europe.

Teams qualified for League of Legends Worlds 2021.

Initially, 24 teams were to participate in the 2021 League of Legends Worlds version. However, after the venue was moved to Europe, two Vietnamese teams had to withdraw due to travel restrictions. In fact, the Vietnam Summer Split 2021 was also cancelled, leading to a very sad situation.
