Everything you need to know about the upcoming MSI 2023 held in London, United Kingdom.


Mid-Season Invitational is one of the two international events Riot organizes every year where teams from nine regional leagues battle it out for a shot at the title. Usually overshadowed by the end-of-the-year tournament, Worlds, MSI is looking a lot more competitive and exciting this year thanks to its new format and the increased number of teams from the four major regions.

The event will take place at the Copper Box Arena in London, between May 2 and May 21.
