LoL Worlds 2020 teams and players

Former champions, debutants, and Worlds stalwarts - who's who at LoL Worlds 2020?

22 teams from five continents are descending on Shanghai for the 2020 League of Legends World Championships. In that mix are past champions, promising rookies, and seasoned veterans, hailing from an array of nations from across the globe.

While the main draw of the tournament is obviously to find out which team sits above all others and can call itself the best in the world, fans are also excited for all of the other storylines and formalities of Worlds. The Worlds song, for example, is a symbolic moment in the LoL calendar, and this year’s is a banger. Then there’s the opportunity to see metas and play styles from different regions colliding on the Rift. And there’s even the potential of an underdog team making a miracle run through the tournament, slaying the giants from Europe, Korea, and China along the way.

But who’s who at this year’s Worlds? Which teams and players have experienced the bright lights of Worlds before? Who’s looking to become world champion for a second time? And which nations are being represented at this global event?

If you want to learn about Worlds 2020’s format and schedule, we suggest you read this guide to LoL Worlds. But, if it’s the teams and players you’re interested in, you’re in the right place. Let’s dive in and break everything down.

LoL Worlds 2020 teams

Debut teams

Ten of the 22 teams at Worlds 2020 will be making their first ever appearances at the tournament.

Incredibly, three of the four teams from the LPL – Top Esports, JD Gaming, and Suning – are making their Worlds debuts in the absence of established Chinese organisations like Invictus Gaming, Royal Never Give Up, and defending champions FunPlus Phoenix. Top and JD are also touted as two of the favourites to become world champions.

Alongside those three Chinese debutants are seven other teams from across the globe getting their first taste of Worlds action. They are Rogue, MAD Lions, FlyQuest, Machi Esports, PSG Talon, V3, and Legacy.

Most LoL Worlds appearances

Of the qualified teams for Worlds 2020, Fnatic and TSM hold the joint record for the most Worlds appearances with eight each. That means the two stalwarts of LoL esports have only failed to reach Worlds on two occasions since it began in 2011.

Previous LoL Worlds champions

Only one team at Worlds 2020 has previously won a Worlds title, and that’s Fnatic.

Still to this day, Fnatic are the only European team to win the competition after being crowned world champions in the first ever Worlds in 2011.

LoL Worlds 2020 players

Most LoL Worlds appearances

Of all the qualified players at Worlds 2020, TSM’s veteran player Yiliang ‘Doublelift’ Peng is the most experienced.

This will be Doublelift’s eighth LoL Worlds, having been to the tournament with current team TSM previously, as well as Team Liquid and Epik Gamer.

Previous LoL Worlds champions

Four former world champions will be making appearances at this year’s LoL Worlds.

Team Liquid’s South Korean duo of Jung ‘Impact’ Eon-yeong and Jo ‘CoreJJ’ Yong-in are both past winners with SK Telecom and Samsung Galaxy, respectively.

Another member of that Samsung Galaxy roster will also feature in Shanghai: Gen.G’s AD carry Park ‘Ruler’ Jae-hyuk.

Finally, the bookmakers’ favourite to win Worlds 2020, Top Esports, has Yu ‘JackeyLove’ Wen-Bo on its roster. JackeyLove was a part of the Invictus Gaming team that became world champions in 2018.

LoL Worlds player nationalities

According to Liquipedia, 29 different nationalities are being represented by players at Worlds 2020.

South Korea is, unsurprisingly, the most represented country with 33 players, followed by home nation China (20 players) and Taiwan (11).

There are also a handful of nations with only a single player waving the flag for them, including Vietnam, which will be a ray of light for disappointed Vietnamese fans after teams from the VCL pulled out of this year’s tournament due to coronavirus travel restrictions.

Nations Number of players each
South Korea 33
China 20
Taiwan 11
Denmark 7
Sweden/ Brazil 6
Argentina/ Australia/ Germany/ Japan/ Poland/ Russia/ USA 4
Turkey/ Canada 3
Belgium/ Czech Republic/ Slovenia/ Hong Kong 2
