It has just been announced and confirmed that the 2021 World Championship will begin on the 6th of November 2021 at the Universiade Sports Centre in Shenzhen, China. The stadium is home to Shenzhen F.C. and can seat up to 60,334 at once.
Shenzhen is seen as the leading financial centre in the Asia-Pacific region, which is also known for being one of the leading cities in terms of finance, culture, logistics, and technology.
Shenzhen becomes just the third city in China to play host to the annual League of Legends World Championship with Shanghai in 2020 and Beijing in 2017 as the first two times.
This isn’t the first time a national stadium has been used as the venue. The Universiade Sports Centre joins an already long list of established venues that have played host to Worlds. Some of the biggest names include the AccorHotels Arena in Paris, France, in 2019, New York City’s Madison Square Garden in 2016, and even the Seoul World Cup Stadium in Seoul, South Korea, in 2014, to name a few.
