Fresh off the success of 2018, we are happy and excited to announce that Nordic Championship is back! Make sure to get your picks and bans ready because we are preparing to host the best Nordic League of Legends tournament yet.
In 2018 we saw teams from Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark battle it out in the qualifiers, group stages and eventually, Grand Finals in the Monster Energy DreamHack Studio in Stockholm, Sweden. We can’t wait until we find out who will end up playing the Grand Final of the Nordic Championship Spring 2019 season!
For 2019 Nordic Championship continues to have a central position for the League of Legends tournament ecosystem, making each match matter that much more for aspiring teams, players and organisations looking for opportunities to prove themselves on an international stage.
The best two teams in the Challengermode regional leagues from Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland will earn a direct spot into the Nordic Championship group stage.
We would also like to give a warm welcome to Iceland as the champions from the Reykjavik International Games will earn a spot in the group stage! Make sure to catch the live broadcast of the event on the 26-27th of January!
