MCM eSports is hosting a large viewing party this October at MCM London Comic Con for the League of Legends World Championships Finals, following on from the success of our “pop-up shops” at MCM London Comic Con back in October of last year where ESL, Twitch and MCM eSports displayed the World Championships on various screens throughout the venue. The community was very engaging and we loved being able to interact with you, the community all through a game that we all love to watch!
This year we are hosting a viewing party for the Finals of this world championship on Saturday from midnight until 3am which will be open to 400 people where we will be there until late watching the Finals with you, doing community giveaways with some special goodies from Riot.
