With the 2021 League of Legends World Championship starting on Oct. 5, here’s the schedule for all the upcoming games. As Worlds 2021 is such a big event, there are plenty of games to go through. Here is a list of all the games, from play-ins to the final.

Play-ins schedule

To start the event, there are four spots available for 10 teams in the Worlds 2021 play-ins. The 10 teams are split into two groups, with the games being best-of-one, and the top of the group automatically qualifies for the group stages. After the round-robin matches are done, the team in last is eliminated from the competition. For the rest of the teams, from second to fourth place in their round-robins, they advance to the knockout stage. The teams who finished second in their group only need one win to progress, while the other four need two.

Then, whichever team gets through the bracket and wins the final gets the 2021 League of Legends World Championship. Make sure to tune into the streams at either Riot’s Twitch or their home site for content and drops.

Worlds 2021 co-streams coming soon

The 2021 League of Legends World Championship games start on Oct. 5, at 7 a.m. EST. The first match is between Hanwha Life Esports and LNG, in the play-ins section of the competition. At the same time, streamers such as G2 Esports jungler Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski will be streaming the matches with Riot’s permission.

Co-streams are meant to be a more loose, fun and open discussion version of the official game streams. In this case, with Jankos, fans have commentary with a current top-tier player, which can vary from insightful to just funny or brash. More will be announced and updated here.

Polish-Canadian game enthusiast. I've been entrenched in gaming as long as I can remember, with my first ever game being Pokemon Yellow and my most played game being Borderlands 2 (3000+ hours). Some other key favourites of mine are Transistor and Night in the Woods, but I spend stupid amounts of time playing Overwatch. I have a BA Honors in Film Studies, and want to continue to be part of film, gaming and writing.
