LoL Rift Rivals tournament takes place early July in Sydney

International League of Legends tournament Rift Rivals will sport a Sydney leg next month, Riot Games and EVENT have confirmed.

Taking place at Sydney’s State Theatre over 2-5 July, the tournament will features players like Shern ‘Shernfire’ Tai from Dire Wolves, Japan’s Kyohei ‘Ceros” Yoshida from DetonatioN FocusMe, and SEA’s Nuttapong “G4” Menkasikan from Ascension Gaming.

“Bringing Rift Rivals to this spectacular live venue on home turf would not be possible without EVENT,” Daniel Ringland, Head of Oceanic Esports at Riot Games, said.

“We know how important live tournaments are for our fans; they bring us together to share in the thrill of watching League of Legends played at the very highest level. The fact it’s Oceania’s three best teams competing is just icing on the cake.”

Tickets for the event are on sale now and start at $49 AUD.
