The latest season of EMEA Teamfight Tactics commences in June with an open qualifier before concluding in October with the Rising Legends Finals. Qualifiers begin with 512 players participating. The top 32 will qualify for Golden Spatula Cups, which allows players to win prize money and points.

EMEA Teamfight Tactics in 2023 will feature its largest prize pool in history. The Rising Legends: Monsters Attack competition featured a €50,000 (~£44,100) prize pool, with this amount more than doubled for its Runeterra Reforged season.

Set nine of EMEA Teamfight Tactics will culminate with a three-day tournament where players qualified from the Golden Spatula Cups and the in-game ladder will play for a chance to compete at the Teamfight Tactics Runeterra Reforged championship and the €25,000 (~£21.415) prize for first place.

Riot Games continues to support EMEA Teamfight Tactics and the global scene. In May 2023, the publisher unveiled plans to host the first-ever Teamfight Tactics global LAN tournament at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Max Wischow, Product Lead for EMEA Teamfight Tactics esports, spoke on the news: “Set 9, Runeterra Reforged, has been game-changing in so many aspects and we are super excited to start a new season with action-packed matches.

“With more prize money on the line, the stakes are higher than ever and we look forward to seeing the best Tacticians compete for glory.”
