The Mid-Season Invitational is back after a one-year hiatus.

This time around, 11 League of Legends teams representing 11 regions will battle it out in Reykjavík, Iceland for fame, glory, and something that money can’t buy—an extra slot at Worlds. 

The first international event of the year will feature teams like DWG KIA, who are hot off of winning the 2020 World Championship with one of the most dominant rosters in history, and Royal Never Give Up, who qualified for the tournament after beating the likes of FunPlus Phoenix, Top Esports, and EDG.

Riot scrapped the play-in stage this year and split all 11 regions into four tiers based on the results of the last two years of international tournaments. The result is three separate groups.

In the group stage, Groups B and C will play a best-of-one double round-robin and Group A will play a quadruple round-robin. The top two teams from each group will advance to the next stage of the tournament.
