It is a return to the American continent after six years, with Worlds 2016 taking place in the USA. However, now Riot has decided to expand the field of activity a bit and make the event a kind of tour around the entire continent. The 2022 World Championship plan is as follows:

  • Additional Play – Mexico City, Studio LLA
  • Groups and Quarterfinals – New York, Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden
  • Semi-finals – Toronto, Scotia Bank Arena
  • Final – San Francisco, Chase Center

This will be the first time in history that an international Riot Games event will be held in Canada and Mexico. The announcement came at a press conference prior to the Toronto Raptors’ NBA game against the Golden State Warriors. Interestingly, the crucial matches of the event will be played in their arenas.
