League of Legends: Wild Rift is a multiplayer online battle arena game. It has been built from the ground up for mobile. With fresh controls and fast-paced games, players of every level can team up with friends, lock in their champion and go for the big plays.
What is the Wild Rift EMEA Championship (WREC)?
The WREC is the pinnacle of competitive Wild Rift action in EMEA, featuring the best teams from across Europe, CIS, Middle-East and Africa. Whether an Esports fan looking for a fast-paced, action-packed fix, or a brand new fan checking out the biggest plays to replicate in game – Wild Rift Esports has something for everyone.
May 2022 marks the culmination of the EMEA Season 1 competition, with the EMEA champion being crowned on Sunday 8 May.

A further team from the below will finish the roster. With these two teams competing in the Play-In to determine the final six. Formulation GamingUnicorns of Love
As winners of the Europe and Turkey groups, Game-Lord and NASR Esports enter the tournament as narrow favourites. However, both Parla Esports and Rix.gg were also finalists in each competition (with Rix.gg beating Game-Lord in the first final) – so expect an action-packed matchup when these teams meet. Coming in as the winner of the Play-In, Formulation Gaming and Unicorns of Love would be the current underdogs – but certainly not to be underestimated!
