Saudi Arabia To Host Riot Games Esports Event

December 3, 2019

Saudi Arabia will be hosting the latest Riot Games League of legends event in Saudi Arabia this weekend.

The event will have $2 million prize fund for six competitions that will be staged during the three-day extravaganza.

This is the latest major event to be taken to Saudi Arabia, following a number of WWE’s major events being hosted in the country and Anthony Joshua’s huge heavyweight rematch with Andy Ruiz being staged there this weekend also.

Riot Games’ METAI General Manager, Onur Tamer, said: “We opened our offices in the region over a year ago. Since then, we have been working on ways to deliver local experiences to our communities and players across the MENA region. The Nexus is our first step in solidifying our presence in the region to support and celebrate our players.

“The launch of the Nexus festival is just one part of our plan to increase our presence in the MENA region. We are also looking at rolling out Arabic language support for all our products starting next year along with a localised version of League of Legends for all our players.”
