League Unlocked is a premium League of Legends experience provided by Riot Games especially for City Champs and City Rec.
In League Unlocked:
To be clear, these features are only available when you are in the theater, though you of course get to keep the XP and IP you’ve earned!
City Champs pits teams of 60 League of Legends players in each city against teams from other cities in a 5 event season for the City Champs title.
City Champs is extremely competitive. First, players compete to earn a spot on their city team and then they compete for their city team against other cities.
All of the competition happens in movie theaters, with your gameplay on the big screen. And you get to enjoy League Unlocked!
No. City Champs is for amateur players who want to compete against the best amateur players in their city, and against the best amateur players in other cities.
Each city team has 60 players. Those 60 players are broken into 12 sub-teams of five players each, numbered 1-12.
When two cities play each other, each city’s team #1 plays the other team #1. Team #2 plays team #2 ... team #12 plays team #12.
For season 1 of City Champs, interested players apply here. Super League will choose 60 players from each city out of all qualified applicants by the following method:
1. Players are sorted by role
2. Players within role are then sorted by Dynamic Queue rank
a. If Dynamic Queue rank does not exist, player will be assumed to be Silver V
3. Then the total number of players is divided by 12. We call this quotient ‘X’.
4. Next, we sort all role groups into X-sized groups so that each grouping consists of similarly skilled players all the way from top tier to bottom tier.
5. Finally, we randomly choose one player from each X-sized group from each role group.
First, it's free to register for a chance to participate in our Champs events. If you're selected as one of our City Champs Summoners then you will have 24 hours to buy your ticket for $80, or your spot will be forfeited. You only pay if you opt to play.
You can find our current cities on the Teams page. We’re rolling out City Champs and City Rec a few cities at a time so that we can get things right and create the best experience possible. We appreciate your patience.
The initial rollout will be in Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas and Miami with Champs, followed by Rec starting shortly after the conclusion of City Champs.
Season 2 will include the cities from season 1, and four more (to be determined).
Seasons 3 and beyond will introduce even more cities.
Please see the Events section for all event dates.
Event 1 is a marathon four-game event between the players within a city which ranks the sub-teams for that city.

Event 1 of City Champs is what we call “Ranking Day.” In the movie theater you’ll play four games (yes, four games of League of Legends in a movie theater!) against the other players in your theater, each game with new teammates.
After the four games, players will then be slotted into the 12 teams for their city based on their win-loss record, per position.
You will be placed on a subteam at the end of Ranking Day, based on your skill level. In events 2-5 each city will play the other cities.
You and your city team will be in the movie theater in your city and playing against a 60-player team in a movie theater in your opponent city. That’s right, 60 people in, say, Los Angeles playing against 60 people in Miami.
Each city’s subteams will play against each other. Subteam A in Los Angeles will play vs subteam A in Miami, etc. All of these games will happen simultaneously.
Each match-up consists of two games. Points are awarded as follows:
Subteams A-D: 3 points per win
Subteams E-H: 2 points per win
Subteams I-L: 1 points per win
The city with the most points, after all teams have played two games, is the winner. After three weeks of round-robin play between the cities, the final week of the season is the championship. The teams with the two best records will play for the City Champs championship and the other two teams will play for 3rd place.
Super League empowers every gamer to become part of a team. Our City Teams are more than just a flashy t-shirt or jersey—they let you play for your city, give you a team to root for in every match, and allow local gaming communities to rally together like never before.
When you create an account with Super League, you’re assigned a City Team based on your location.
Anyone who participates in one of Super League’s League of Legends events plays as part of a City Team.
Currently, you can watch City Teams in the theatre at every Super League event. Soon, you’ll be able to watch from home and on demand.
Everyone can play or root for a City Team in some way.
However, our League of Legends City Champs events have limited spots and require you to be level 30 in order to participate. For City Champs, player selection is done at random, so long as players meet the requirements.
League of Legends City Rec events are open to everyone.
In City Champs, City Teams will face off against one another in a national, round robin tournament.
In City Rec, you’ll play with and against your City Team allies in the theatre.
While Super League technically “owns” these franchises, they truly belong to you and your local community.
We will be rolling out more City Teams in the coming months, so stay tuned! In the meantime, nominate your city to become part of Super League.
