Worlds season has officially begun. Now that each significant region around the world has actually crowned their regular-season champions, eyes have currently turned towards League of Legends’ marquee occasion and fans will not have to wait long for their very first taste of what the competition will need to provide.

At the tail-end of the LCS’ finals transmitted the other day, Riot’s James Dash let the cat out of the bag. The 2020 World Championship draw program will air survive on Sept. 15.

There’s no word yet on the specific time at which this broadcast will take place, however viewing as though it’s just around the corner, a full statement of the show will likely be made soon.

Worlds 2020 will look rather various from any iteration before it. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Vietnamese groups will not have the ability to participate in the occasion. Riot also decided to host Worlds in a single-city, using a bubble hub format. This might suggest there won’t be any crowds for most of the event and it lowers Riot’s ability to produce the sort of top-notch program that normally accompanies the matches at Worlds.

Despite these problems, however, the quality of the gameplay could be just as high as its ever been. G2 Esports seem to be back to their dominant ways, JD Gaming and Top Esports are two of the greatest groups China has ever sent out to Worlds, and Damwon are finally measuring up to the requirement that the names on that lineup demand of them.

Just 10 days after the draw program, the primary event will begin. Worlds will start on Sept. 25 and the finest group on the planet will be crowned on Oct. 31.
