Who will be competing in the next LoL World Championship?

We don’t know which teams will yet qualify for the Season 10 League of Legends World Championship. Of the 24 participants, 12 will have to qualify for the main event via the play-in stage if the tournament conforms to the same structure of the Season 9 tournament. The other 12 participants will qualify automatically for the main event. Regional seeding has yet to be announced, but in the past the major regions (Europe, China, South Korea and North America) have sent three teams to the event, with at least two automatically qualifying for the main event. The other regions each send at least one team to the play-in stage.

What happened at the Season 9 LoL World Championship?

FunPlus Phoenix from the Chinese LPL won their first title in the finals against G2 from the European LEC at the Season 9 LoL World Championship in Paris, France. FunPlus Phoenix have retained their roster from last season for the spring split of the LPL. G2 have also retained the same roster they used to get to the finals.
