When selecting your tickets make sure that you have selected the League of Legends event at the bottom. Once that’s picked you will need to select your ticket quantity and we suggest that you keep the “Best Available” selected. Remember that unlike basketball or football, this event will pretty much be showcased on giant screens, so how far you sit away won’t factor in as much.
The format of this Semifinals will be four teams fighting it out for a chance to play at the 2016 World Championship. The Quarterfinals themselves have not started yet, as they are being held in Chicago on October 13. While there is no doubt that dozens of teams will enter, certain fan favorites such as the Immortals and Cloud9 may certainly make it to the end. Make sure to check back with us as we update the standings from the Quarterfinals and see who will be making it to Madison Square Garden.
