Wild Rift fans from Southeast Asia rejoice. Just as the Wild Rift SEA Pentaboom concluded yesterday with Vietnam’s Volley taking the victory without dropping a single game, Riot Games Southeast Asia has more plans in store for Wild Rift esports.
Today, Riot Games Southeast Asia announced 2021 esports and competitive collegiate plans for League of Legends: Wild Rift, the 5v5 mobile MOBA that is in Open Beta across Southeast Asia.
Wild Rift Esports will kick off with several smaller, intermittent competitive events from January through March to give viewers a taste of the budding talent and teams in the region.

Collegiate partners will partner with educational institutions and universities across the region to create exciting tournaments that will give students a taste of top tier competition. The appointed partners that will work in close support with Riot Games Southeast Asia to roll out the official Wild Rift esports and collegiate tournaments are:
