The championship event will be broken down into two separate events; The World Playoffs and the World Finals.
The first event is the World Playoffs and it spans from Thursday, October 4th, until Saturday, October 6th. During this time the top twelve teams from NA, EU, Korea, China, and SEA will battle it out to see who deserves the title of World Champion.
The second event is the World Finals and will be hosted Saturday October 13th. This event will feature a fierce competition between the two best teams to come out of the playoffs. The winner of this event will be crowned the League of Legends Season 2 World Championship and walk away with a hefty cash prize.
Both events are being held in Southern California and tickets go on sale Friday, August 31, at 10:00 am Pacific time. According to Magus, an eSports Manager at Riot, their will be two types of tickets available depending on where in the stadium you want to sit, $70 for the "lower level" tickets and $40 for the "upper level".
