Faker, Canyon, Bwipo and more confirmed for League of Legends All-Star 2020

Riot has released the first batch of stars for its end of season celebration


Earlier this month, Riot confirmed that its online-only All-Star 2020 event would be going ahead, and now we have a near-complete list of players you’ll see at this year’s star-studded event.

All-Star is generally seen as a fun celebration and a good way to end the past 12 months of LoL esports on a high. It pits regions and pros together for what are intended to be competitive but lighthearted matches. Once again, those selected to participate in the event were voted in by the fans.

All-Star 2020 is currently set to kick off on December 18, with the first competition – Underdog Uprising – seeing the top four leagues (LCK, LPL, LEC, and LCS) play against teams from smaller nearby regions. The Superstar Showdown will follow on December 19 and 20. This is where we’ll see fan-voted All-Stars, former pros, and the biggest influencers from the top four regions duke it out for our entertainment.

The All-Star pro teams will go head to head for a best-of-three, and you should expect the usual fun twists to keep things exciting. Here’s a full overview of the upcoming event.

Notable pro players who are confirmed to be at All-Star 2020 include T1’s Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok and two players who helped DAMWON Gaming become world champions this year: Kim ‘Canyon’ Geon-bu and Cho ‘BeryL’ Geon-hee.

The LCS vote appears to have been hijacked by Team Liquid supporters with all four currently confirmed players having played for the organisation this year.

Interestingly, no G2 players will feature in the LEC’s squad, which features Fnatic trio Gabriel ‘Bwipo’ Rau, Oskar ‘Selfmade’ Boderek, and Zdravets ‘Hylissang’ Galabov.

We’re still awaiting, confirmation on the LPL’s lineup and many of the ex-pros and content creators are also yet to be announced officially. You can see all the currently confirmed All-Star players here.
