League of Legends Season 9 Start Date

Season 9 for League of Legends will start Jan. 23. That falls in line with the usual timeline for League of Legends and the start of the competitive season. League needs to have the first patch out in time for teams to practice and prepare for the start of the season.

Players can still participate in the preseason to keep their accounts warm and skills ready for when the ninth season kicks off.
