Sources: Worlds 2021 to be held in Iceland after success of MSI

Following the announcement that the 2021 League of Legends World Championship will be held in Europe instead of China, Riot Games has decided to once again rely on Iceland as its venue, sources tell Dot Esports.

Less than a week ago, Riot Games confirmed (following a report from Upcomer) that Worlds 2021, League’s biggest event of the year, will be moving from China to Europe due to the COVID-19 Delta variant. “Tvel restrictions and COVID protocols have been even MORE complicated to navigate in 2021 than they were in 2020,” according to an official statement from Riot’s global head of esports, John Needham.
