The tournament will have two stages, with one being held on November 13th, and the other on November 21st. It serves as a celebration for the end of the 2021 preseason. The preseason was a prelude to the official season that will kick off in 2022.
To qualify for the Wild Rift Horizon Cup, eight regions around the world will launch regional tournaments that will culminate in Singapore. The top ten teams from these regional qualifiers will battle it out at the Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre on November 13th. The winning teams from here will get an opportunity to win the first-ever Wild Rift tournament on November 21st.
