Riot Games announced that the next iteration of the LoL World Championships will take place in Europe, with the final happening at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris.
The announcement was made as part of a roadmap to 2021 where Riot outlined their plans for the tournament over the next few years. The 2020 edition will be in China while 2021 will see the tournament return to North America.
Riot was criticised prior to Worlds 2018 due to a short notice announcement of venues and tournament dates. In this announcement, they said:
By creating more lead time for our major global event planning cycles, we will provide fans, players, teams, and partners with more time to plan ahead as well.
Dates and other host cities for Worlds 2019 are yet to be finalised, Riot teased additional announcements later in November.
