The 2019 stop in Europe represents the first worlds to take place on the continent since the 2014 finals in Berlin. The host cities for the tournaments early stages will be announced in the future, but Riot has already determined the affair will conclude at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris.
2020's tournament in China will be the tenth worlds in history, a landmark Riot hopes to celebrate with the impressive viewership and passion of the Chinese finals in 2017 at the Beijing National Stadium. No cities have yet been announced for 2020 or for 2021's stop in North America.
