So what’s exactly going down with the Wild Rift: Horizon Cup? The best of the best players are going to come together and compete, all aiming towards Singapore. This is to celebrate the end of the 2021 preseason, and will have ten teams doing battle in the Wild Rift: Horizon Cup. These teams will come from regional qualifiers, and then head to Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre in November.

The Wild Rift Horizon Cup is the first of many steps we will take to show how committed we are to our mobile fans around the world. We are excited to share more of what we’ve been preparing for the future of the sport later this year.

The first international title will be decided for Wild Rift from November 13th – November 21st. The Finals will take place on November 21st, and we cannot wait to see who shows up. Quite a few major esports orgs have been fielding Wild Rift teams, so we imagine some of them will be making a play here. Riot Games are committed to building their esports ecosystem for Wild Rift, and this is a great step in that direction.
