Worlds 2023 is been penned in for an Oct. 10 start date, which is a little later than the standard September click-off. The play-ins and group stages will be held in Seoul before the tournament shifts to Busan for finals. Seoul’s 17,000-capacity Gocheok Sky Dome will be hosting the grand finals.
When the premier event finally begins in late October we will have 22 League teams locked in and ready to battle for history at the 13th edition of one of the most illustrious tournaments in all esports. That will include four representatives each from heavyweight regions like China and Korea, between three and four from NA and EMEA, and a host of Cinderella hopefuls.

Gen.G’s 3-2 victory over T1 on Aug. 12 locks them in as the first home team to secure a spot at Worlds 2023. Gen.G is unassailable for the LCK Championship points lead, meaning that, should they win the Summer Split, the second-placed team will receive the Worlds spot instead.
