League of Legends Battlegrounds

At the heart of League of Legends is the joy of competition. Five players coordinating their efforts in pursuit of a common goal – reaching the opposing team’s Nexus so they can smash it to rubble.

In that spirit, we’re excited to unveil Battlegrounds, a new tournament series for European players of all skill levels. You don’t have to be Challenger tier, just somebody who occasionally enjoys tackling a new challenge with a group of friends.

There will be four online qualifiers in total for the UK and Ireland, the first of which will take place starting April 25. Players will accumulate points throughout the year that are based on their final standings. Matches will be played every weekend for the duration of each qualifier. Registration opens on April 13th and closes April 23rd.

If you live in one of the countries listed below, prepare your team of nine (that’s five starters and four subs) and go to the Battlegrounds website  to review the full tournament guidelines.

At launch, Battlegrounds will be available in the below mentioned countries. But stay tuned because, like Tristana’s passive, we hope to increase its range as the program levels up!
