Worlds 2021 is just around the corner, despite there not yet being official confirmation of the host country for the League of Legends showpiece. The event, due to take place in China, has been moved due to the ongoing pandemic, and will now take place in Europe.

A new report suggests the tournament will get under way on October 5, and will take place in Iceland -- as strongly rumoured. The Laugardalshöll Indoor Sporting Arena is said to be the venue, and was previously used for both MSI and the VALORANT Masters.

A video preview from Riot Japan revealed that the Worlds 2021 Main Event begins on October 11, with the Play-In Stage getting under way on October 5 according to a report from Dot Esports' Pablo Suarez.

There are no confirmed schedules, as yet, so fans worldwide wondering how they'd need to adjust their schedules are still left guessing.

As for the length of the tournament, it appears it will not last any longer than 31 days. All things going to plan, the event is due to end on November 6.

No information has been revealed either as to whether fans will be in attendance, but if these rumours of Iceland as hosts do pan out, then crowds are unlikely.
