With League of Legends Worlds 2021 on the horizon, we now have the final lineup for both the Play-in Stage and the Group Stage.

The 22 team slots for this Worlds have now been filled after the LPL and LJL regions filled their last two seeds to be whisked off to the upcoming event. These 22 teams will be split right down the middle, 11 of them seeded straight into the Groups whereas the other 11 have to fight their way in through the Play-ins.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions around Vietnam, the representative teams from the VCS region are unfortunately unable to attend this year with the rising number of global cases.
