Asian Games 2022 LoL: All You Need to Know About Team Korea's Evaluation Matches

The 19th Asian Games is the first occasion where esports is an official medal event. It was initially scheduled to be held in Hangzhou, China between 10th September and 25th September 2022. However, the resurgence of COVID-19 cases in China led to the postponement of the event to 2023. The 2022 Asian Games is all set to feature eight medal events and two demonstration events. Notably, Riot Games’ flagship esports title League of Legends is one of the eight medal events.  

The Group Stage of the League of Legends event at Asian Games 2022 is scheduled to kick off on 25th September and the Korean team is one of the favorites to win it all. The scouting process for the Korean national team for League of Legends began in April 2022 but since the Asian Games got postponed, the Korea Esports Association (KeSPA) took time to announce the final roster.

Now, before the Asian Games 2022’s League of Legends event kicks off, Team Korea is playing a couple of evaluation matches against Team Vietnam and Team Taiwan.

Here’s all you need to know about these evaluation matches.
