Riot Games Southeast Asia has announced its 2021 League of Legends: Wild Rift esports and competitive collegiate plans.

There will first be several “intermittent” events taking place between January and March, followed by eight “location-specific” tournament circuits in April. The local champions that arise from these circuits will then compete against one another on a “cross-Southeast Asia level”.
