The LoL Worlds is just around the corner. 22 teams from all over the world are coming together in South Korea to fight for a spot at the top of the LoL esports world, but who is going to take home the glory, as well as the fat prize pool that Riot is offering? 

Worlds Prize Pool: Around How Much Can LoL Teams Earn?

Until now Riot has not revealed an official amount for the prize pool. Normally, Riot will give a base for the money teams can earn, with the League of Legends community chipping in by purchasing in-game content with parts of the profits going right into the prize pool. 

Looking at previous years though, we see that the prize pool has hovered between $2.1 and $2.4 million, which means that the estimated prize pool for the 2023 League of Legends World Championship should be around $2.2 million. 

The team that wins the 2023 League of Legends World Championship will be receiving the largest share of the prize pool, with second place coming right after... obviously. Each team competing will get some portion of the prize pool though. 

  • First Place: 22%
  • Second Place: 15%
  • Third/Fourth Place: 8%

Third and fourth place will receive the same amount, since there are no matches for third place at the League of Legends World Championship

Riot have already given details on which in-game bundles players can purchase to support the teams competing at the 2023 League of Legends World Championship.
