The Mid-Season Invitational stands as one of the most anticipated professional League of Legends events each year. Thirteen regions will send their best competitors based on spring split standings, and the teams will face off against each other to give fans a taste of what’s to come for the World Championship at the end of the year.

Riot Games most recently revealed the location and dates for this year’s MSI, which will travel to Vietnam and Taiwan in May.

The play-in stage will take place in Hanoi from May 1 to May 7, where it will be followed by the group stage from May 10 to May 14 in Ho Chi Minh City. Taipei will host the knockout stage from May 17 to May 19, where one team will be crowned as the MSI Champion.   

Last year’s MSI took place in Europe, with the play-in stages being held at the EU LCS Studio in Berlin followed by the knockout stage at the Zenith Paris La Villette in Paris. This year’s event will see the first time MSI has taken place in either Vietnam or Taiwan.
