Riot Games has announced the rescheduling of MSI for League of Legends from May to July. This announcement also revealed that all future Rift Rivals tournaments have been canceled.
Global Head of League of Legends Esports for Riot Games, John Needham, released a statement on the changes and why they decided on this course of action:
After discussing with our leagues and other stakeholders, we've made the decision to move our annual mid-year global tournament event from May to July this year. Shifting the tournament to the summer offers the best chance to see travel restrictions lifted, allowing teams from leagues around the world to travel and compete safely. Location and other details will be shared as soon as possible, though we need to remain flexible, given how much the COVID-19 situation has impacted international travel and live events for nearly every sports and entertainment property. That said, we're committed to ensuring that MSI remains a truly globally resonant experience.
This announcement comes amidst a number of events and conferences being canceled or rescheduled due to the coronavirus epidemic. The coronavirus has effected esports leagues and tournaments across the entire world, and measurements like these have been made to protect everyone involved.
