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.
