Will China’s Suning, the tournament underdogs, continue their giant-killing run and pull off their biggest upset on the grandest stage? Or will DAMWON Gaming, the first South Korean team to reach the Worlds 2020 Finals in three years, bring back the Summoner’s Cup to South Korea? The two League of Legends Esports (LoL Esports) teams square off at 6 PM Philippine Standard Time today at the 2020 League of Legends World Championship Finals at SAIC Motor Pudong Arena in Shanghai.

“The Worlds will be the first global event of any kind happening in the stadium. And over 3.2 million people registered in the hopes of being selected as part of the 6,000 lucky [ones] who will be attending live on Saturday. And last but not least, thank you [Shanghai] for helping us make this event safe for players, teams, and everybody on the ground. We have over a thousand people who’ve worked on the show, and I know you’ve invested significant resources to make sure each and everyone is healthy and safe for the duration of the competition. In true honesty, I don’t think there’s anywhere else on the planet right now where we could host Worlds. So this year I think Shanghai has proven that it’s on its way to becoming — if it’s not already — the world’s capital of esports,” said Riot Games CEO Nicolo Laurent at the Worlds 2020 Finals Media Day on Oct. 29.
