“Worlds is the biggest esports event of the year, and this collaboration with Lexis Partners will help us bring the excitement of the World Final to big screens across the world,” said Naz Aletaha, Global Head of LoL Esports at Riot Games. “We look forward to providing the community with another way to experience the sport and spectacle that makes Worlds so special.”
“As the No. 1 esports event of the year, Worlds is where legends are made or broken,” said co-founders John Rubey and Robert Markovich of Lexis Partners. “We are excited to be a part of Riot’s commitment of giving back to their community and creating an environment tailored for an unbelievable experience.”
In Europe, Korea, USA, Canada and elsewhere, in-cinema viewing parties for Worlds have become an enormously popular part of the experience, with fans often packing cinemas in the middle of the night depending on the location of the World Championship. This expansion into more territories and screens worldwide is part of Riot’s commitment to bringing Worlds to as many fans as possible.
Worlds is the pinnacle of LoL Esports competition in which the top teams from regional leagues around the world compete for the world championship title. Held at the end of the regular season in a different host region each year, 24 teams will participate in the month-long tournament to crown one as the best in the world. The 2021 World Championship surpassed previous viewership records with more than 73 million peak concurrent viewers worldwide and an average minute audience (AMA) of more than 30 million.
