Prize Pool

While the specific prize pool amount for Worlds 2020 has not yet been revealed, Riot Games have revealed the distribution of the pool according to the final ranking.

League of Legends

The distribution of the prize pool between the different teams participating in the World Championship has been changed this year.

One of the most exciting prizes in esports is having your accomplishment enshrined in game with the World Champion Skins, themed in consultation with the members of the winning team. The players and team also receive 25% of the sales of these skins," Riot have said.

"Over the past few years, these skins have performed better and better, leading to a much larger gap in prizing between first and second place.

"To create a more equitable structure, the first-place prize will be reduced and allocated to the other finishers to better distribute the Worlds prize pool to the remaining competitors, who do not benefit from the sale of the Worlds skins.

"We’ve slightly modified the intended new structure to account for the VCS teams who are unable to attend; we will be paying out more than 100% of the prize pool this year."
