About the league

PGL is proud to announce the PGL Legends of the Rift Season 1, a new league with $50,000 up for grabs for European League of Legends teams that will make its debut this September.

The competition will field 12 top up and coming European teams from the EU West realm. Ultimately, four squads will compete for the Championship title in the Playoff, which will take place on November 13 – 15.

With a $40,000 cash prize pool, PGL Legends of the Rift Season 1 was designed to support the grassroots scene and will reward a team’s performance right from the first match.

Each group winner will get $1,500 in cash and a spot in the playoffs, while the 2nd and 3rd placed squads will get one last shot at redemption and the 4th playoff spot in the Last Chance Tournament (click here to read the prize policy).
