China has recently taken a stand on suspending several international sporting events within the country. According to the Associated Press, this measure from China was taken to ensure the safety of those involved for fear of a new wave of covid-19 taking place.
 
Within these sporting events, the World of League of Legends was scheduled to take place, which still had no fixed date to happen, however, always occurred in the last three months of the year.
 
The World Golf Championship, Ladies Professional Golf Association and the World League of Legends would be hosted in the city of Shanghai that received the news of suspending activities.
 
"China just canceled all international sporting events by the end of 2020, which means that the League of Legends World Championship, which will be held in Shanghai later this year, is likely to be postponed, moved elsewhere or played entirely online. Riot has not yet spoken "- Commented Rod Breslau, one of the biggest eSports consultants.
 
However, there is some speculation that Riot Games is working on a deal to be able to host the 2020 League of Legends World Championship in an isolated format, taking place in a single city, just as the NBA is doing.
 
The system itself aims to limit contact with outsiders, calling on the 24 elite teams (qualified) to compete in the World Cup in Shanghai. The goal is to isolate tournament participants in a hotel, leaving them in quarantine until the competition takes place.
 
However, Riot Games' initial plan was to hold a six-city event, but it ended up being left behind now with the new information from the Chinese government. There is still strong speculation that China may also host the 2021 World Cup.
 
 
It is worth mentioning that North America was already scheduled to host the championship in 2021, which now will possibly have to wait until 2022.
 
The motivation of Riot Games about maintaining the World League of Legends is due to the celebration of 10 years of the game.
 
"We are fully committed to offering the greatest show we have ever produced in China to celebrate the sport's 10th anniversary."
 
"While we must remain agile with our plans, we look forward to celebrating everything we love about League of Legends with a memorable Worlds 2020".
