Goodbye All-Star, hello Kickoff: Riot introduces LoL Esports’ newest international event set to debut next year

Ever since its first-ever showing in 2013, League of Legends fans have looked forward to watching their favorite players come together for some fun, light-hearted games at the annual All-Star event.

After eight years, however, Riot Games is sunsetting the tournament. Instead, a new international event will make its debut, aptly named the Season Kickoff. From Saturday, Jan. 10, to Sunday, Jan. 11, nine regions from around the world will host a special broadcasted event that will preview the upcoming season and its multiple storylines, while putting the spotlight on specific players to watch around the globe.
