Wild Rift Icons Global Championship 2022 to take place in Singapore

The inaugural edition of the League of Legends: Wild Rift Icons Global Championship 2022 is set to take place in Singapore. The event, originally set to take place in Madrid, Spain, has been shifted to Singapore as a result of the international travel complications caused by the global pandemic. 

The Wild Rift season-concluding tournament will take place from June 14 to July 9 at the Suntec Convention and Exhibition Center in Singapore. The event will feature 24 teams from eight regions competing for a share of the $2 million prize pool and the first-ever Icon Champions title.

In its official statement, Riot Games commented: 

“This decision will not only ensure that teams have the best chance of attending Icons, but that they also have a great experience at their first Icons championship.”
