Prized events are tournaments run by third-party organizers. Prizes are determined by whoever is running the show and usually include something from us to sweeten the pot. Whether online or live, Bronze or Diamond, tournaments exist for all levels of competition. We’re here to help you find your next challenge. Check out our new tournament rules beta here and provide feedback on the forums.Browse Tournaments
If your website, club, PC café or garden society is the perfect setting to host an event, you’ve come to the right place. We can help get you set up with prizing, whether you’re battling online or inviting the masses to your LAN showdown. Know the Prized Events FAQ better than you know QWER? It’s time to apply for prizing. Click on the buttons below to get started.Tournament Application
There are currently many tournaments hosted both online and offline in different regions. If you wish to participate in a tournament, you can browse accepted events at Browse Prized Events.
If the tournament application was accepted, the top four teams in the tournament are given RP prizes and tournament-exclusive Triumphant Ryze skin for the winners.
Once a tournament is complete the tournament organizer must provide Riot with the information about the winners and only then can we prize you out. This ensures that players receive their prizes rightfully. If you feel like prize distribution is taking longer than it should, please contact the tournament organizer so they can reach out to us
If you have already attempted to contact the event organizer and feel like you have run out of options, please send an email to email@example.com with the following information:
We are sorry to hear you experienced any issues in the tournament. Your feedback is important to us; please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any feedback or complaints about the tournament you recently participated in. Please also include the following information:
Note that other organizations run these tournaments, and while we will enact what change we can on our end, not every complaint sent to us will result in a change.
Unfortunately, subs don’t receive prizes. We only offer five prizes per team, so make sure the tournament admins know which players are starters and which are subs.
We encourage you to seek out tournaments on your server. If you do decide to change servers, you will be responsible for purchasing server transfers to the new server and back.
You can apply here.
Currently, we only support community tournaments in Brazil, Europe, North America and Oceania. We are actively working on expanding to new regions so that everyone can receive support from us. We apologize if we cannot support your tournament yet.
We do not guarantee that every application will receive prizing. To be more likely to receive prizing you need to have information available for us and players to be able to verify.
You’ll need to have all your rules, competition structure such as bracket style and tournament dates ready and publicly visible on your site. You also must have a clear way for players to register for your event. If you don’t include your tournament rules with your submission and post your rules for all to see your event will be rejected.
We require a minimum of eight participating teams for prized event submissions. We hold the right to deny prizing if a tournament cannot provide adequate proof that this requirement was fulfilled.
There is no maximum number of teams. As long as you have at least eight teams, you’re good to go. Just remember we offer a one-size-fits-all prize package.
You must submit your request at least 10 days prior to the start of your tournament. Anything earlier than that is also acceptable.
We will send you an email either confirming or rejecting your prized event application. If rejected, we will state the reason for the rejection and you are welcome to submit your event again through the website.
We do our best to send a reply via email 3 weeks before your event. Due to the potential high volume of requests, please allow for some fluctuation in this time.
If the tournament application was accepted, the top four teams in the tournament are given RP prizes. Tournament winners also receive tournament-exclusive Triumphant Ryze skin.
When we provide RP prizing for your tournament, we are not officially sponsoring it. Please do not display the Riot Games logo on any banners or websites. Think of the prizes we award as a bonus for helping grow and support our tournament scene.
We hook each organizer up with a unique fancy event URL in the email we send letting them know their event has been approved. So follow that link and fill it out completely to submit your results. But there is a caveat worth pointing out: we only reward prizes to players who competed in the game that won the tournament (since we verify the results submission to make sure the players listed actually played in the game).
This gets a little tricky, so let's use an example: "Press D to Dance" has seven team members, with five listed on the main roster and two subs. The final match was a best of 3, and "Press D to Dance" won the first game. For the second, they subbed in the two bench players, and managed to overcome a rough early game to take down the tournament with a 2-0 sweep. In this example, the five players who played in game two (regardless of their role on the roster) will be awarded prizes from Riot.
TL;DR: If you allow subs, you need to make sure that it is clear to participants that only the players who took part in the winning game will earn Riot-awarded prizes like Triumphant Ryze or RP (you can, of course, distribute any other prizes however you've previously decided).
Yes, the statute of limitations is 2 weeks from when your tournament ends. Failure to report your tournament results in that time frame could result in denial of prizing.
Tournament organizers are not allowed to play in their own tournament to avoid a conflict of interest. Please see Riot tournament rulebook for more information.
We currently only allow LCS and Partner events access to our Tournament Realm, so please use the live client on your server.
While we would love to provide merchandise and similar prizing to tournaments, we are unable to fulfill this request due to the volume of tournament submissions we receive.
