Come take part in the once-in-a-lifetime experience of Worlds in Paris from Wednesday, November 6 to Sunday, November 10 at the Place de l’Hotel de Ville. We’ll have 5 days of activities to celebrate Worlds, concluding with a special Finals viewing party on the 10th.
It’s not every year that the World Championship is hosted in Europe, and even rarer for the finale of the tournament to take place in France. To celebrate as a community, we’ll be putting on the Paris Esports Village for Finals week in partnership with the city of Paris.
The Paris Esports Village will be active November 6 – November 10 from 12:00 PM – 8:00 PM CET each day. Access is completely open to the public, though minors under 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
The Village will be located on the forecourt of the Paris City Hall. From the metro, take stop “Hotel de Ville” (lines 1 & 11); from the RER, take stop “Châtelet – Les Halles”; from bus lines 38, 67, 69, 70, 72, 74, 75, 76, 85 and 96 take stop “Hôtel de Ville.”
All attendees will be given an RFID wristband on-site, allowing you to participate in activities and make purchases at booths/food trucks via a cashless system. To save time on the spot and skip the general line, pre-register for your wristband at this website (providing your summoner name is optional, but can help you earn rewards).
The Mastercard Nexus
Mastercard will host the Mastercard Nexus, a fanzone dedicated to all things Worlds. There’ll be booths from Worlds sponsors and professional teams where you can:
- Meet pro players
- Face off in 1v1s
- Meet League of Legends influencers
- Participate in a scavenger hunt
- Take tons of photos
- Test out the setup that pros use on the Worlds stage
- Create an avatar and “Enter the Rift” in a customized video
- Take part in a “Rift de Paris” AR photo hunt
G2 Esports and Fnatic will both have booths inside the Nexus. Each team has their own activities planned, and you’ll be able to purchase team gear.
Worlds sponsors have their own surprises in store for village attendees!
Alienware will bring gaming stations where you can try out their newest PC/monitor (the Aurora R9 and AW2720HF 240Hz monitor), and participate in a LoL-themed green screen photo booth.
Secretlab will give you the chance to try out the official Worlds chair and pose for a photo with the Summoner’s Cup itself.
AXE will bring an interactive “Enter the Rift” experience, where you’ll be 3D-scanned and inserted into a customized video. They’ll also have a scavenger hunt that spans the entire village.
OPPO’s booth will offer a “Rift de Paris” competition that asks players to take photos around the city for a special reward.
Mastercard will host several influencers for fan meet & greets. They’ll also help you make the most of your cash by giving you €5 in RP if you spend €50 or more at the village and link your summoner name to your wristband (see “Event Information” above).
Finally, Red Bull will host 1v1s at their booth – stay king of the hill and earn a prize!
Finals Viewing Party
On Sunday, November 10th, come watch Finals live from 12:00 PM to 8:00 PM CET. See who comes out victorious on the big screen and share the experience with other fans as passionate as you are! Concessions and booths in the Mastercard Nexus will remain open for the viewing party.
