The preseason will serve as a direct base for the summer season, which will begin on April 3. Unlike the preseason, the summer season will feature open qualifiers giving all teams from the region a chance to compete for a share of the prize pool.

“The Wild Rift SEA Icon Series will be an important foundational step to establishing the regional legacy Southeast Asian players and teams can bring to the global mobile MOBA esports scene,” Riot said.

The summer season will feature seven region-specific tournaments in Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Singapore. Teams can register to compete in the competition from their respective regions.

After a two-month season, the top teams will move to the Summer Super Cup, where a regional champion will be crowned.

“We’ve had an exciting preseason for the League of Legends: Wild Rift Southeast Asia Icon Series, during which we’ve seen some show-stopping performances from our invited teams,” said Chris Tran, head of esports for Riot Games SEA. “We look forward to cheering these top regional talents on and we invite all Wild Rift fans to cheer their favorite teams on as they continue their journey this Summer.”
