It is still a few months before the League of Legends World Championship action breaks lose. However, we can at least enjoy ourselves with the latest news because the cities for the LoL Worlds semifinals and grand finals have been revealed!

We have some exciting news for all League of Legends fans out there! As you might know already, this year's League of Legends World Championship will be hosted in South Korea. Now, we also know to which cities we are headed for the semis and grand finale!

The last time Worlds was hosted in South Korea was back in 2018. Back then, there was a total of four cities hosting the whole event: Play-ins in Seoul, Groups in Busan, Semis in Gwangju, and finally, Incheon for the grand finals.

League of Legends Worlds 2023: Host Cities for Semifinals And Finals

On March 23, the South Korean news portal News1.kr published an article revealing the cities that will host this year's League of Legends World Championship. 

According to the article, the semifinals will be hosted in Busan, and the World finals will occur in the country's capital, Seoul! Both cities are excellent choices for the biggest tournament in League of Legends, considering they are the two biggest cities in South Korea. 

You might remember Busan already from last year. This is because Busan was the city where the League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational 2022 was hosted. 

Even though we do know the cities now, the venues are still unknown. We do, however, have some speculations. For Busan, we believe the Busan Exhibition and Convention Center, BEXCO for short, is the most likely venue, considering the arena's size. 

For Seoul, the speculations currently are on the Gocheok Sky Dome, which usually serves as a baseball stadium. This stadium is massive and can seat over 16,000 people for baseball matches. For concerts and other events not requiring a whole sports field, it can hold up to 25,000 people.

We are super excited for more information to come out regarding the League of Legends World Championship and to see the event return to South Korea, the country with the most dedicated fan base and the most successful region for League of Legends Esports in general. 

What team are you hoping to see in the League of Legends World Championship 2023?
