Dot Esports have learned that RIOT Games plan to organize 2021 World Championship in Iceland’s capital, Reykjavík. The event is supposed to be held at Laugardalshöll Indoor Sporting Arena, the same venue that earlier this year hosted Mid-Season Invitational and VALORANT Masters. The information has not been confirmed by RIOT Games, who plan to share their plans later this week.

It is reported that the championship will be held without live audience from October 5th to November 6th.

Assuming that VCS will not be represented at the event, the full line-up consists of the following 22 teams:

  • Group Stage Teams: Edward Gaming, FunPlus Phoenix, Royal Never Give Up, DAMWON Gaming, Gen.G, T1, MAD Lions, Fnatic, 100 Thieves, Team Liquid, PSG Talon
