The first Teamfight Tactics Galaxies Championship will take place during the first week of September, Riot Games announced today.

The TFT Galaxies Championship is scheduled to be held from Sept. 3 to 4. A third day has also been added, featuring the top eight players from the tournament previewing Set Four. 

The road to a legitimate competitive scene in TFT has been a bit bumpy in some regions as the month of August wraps up the final Regional Qualifiers. Only 16 competitors will advance from the Regional Finals to the Galaxies Championship.
