Riot Games has announced that there will be a global esports tournament for their popular mobile MOBA, League of Legends: Wild Rift, later this year. This will see regional teams across the globe competing to earn a place in a tourney in late 2021.
At a regional level, Wild Rift already has an active esports scene. Most notably, in Southeast Asia, the SEA Icon Series: Preseason has recently concluded. It was a five-week-long event in Vietnam, Taiwan, the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore, with 54 professional teams participating.
