A few months ago, Riot shared their plans of building a successful League of Legends: Wild Rift esports ecosystem that is self-sustaining and independent of League of Legends esports on PC. In addition to this, they revealed the Wild Rift world championship; however, no details were shared at that time.
However, Riot Games has finally announced the first-ever global tournament of the game called Wild Rift: Horizon Cup. The tournament will begin on 13th November, with the finals taking place on November 21st, and will be held in Singapore at Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The regional qualifiers have already begun across various regions, and the top 10 teams qualifying from these qualifiers will battle against each other in Wild Rift: Horizon Cup for the ultimate title of the champions.

"The Wild Rift Horizon Cup is the first of many steps we will take to show how committed we are to our mobile fans around the world. We are excited to share more of what we’ve been preparing for the future of the sport later this year,"said Leo Faria, the head of Wild Rift esports.
"In most Asian countries, mobile esports are popular and are among the most successful esports properties, but we’re going beyond that. We aspire to make Wild Rift the first truly global mobile esport, breaking into all corners of the globe,"
As of now, Riot hasn't revealed much about Wild Rift: Horizon Cup and they will announce regional qualifier dates, prize pool, broadcast schedule, and format closer to the event.
