The Melbourne Esports Open will no longer take place in 2020, and instead has been rescheduled to the weekend of August 21-22, 2021. This decision has been reached in light of the current global health situation, and is in line with protective measures implemented in respect of mass gatherings, and importantly, is made in the interest of safety for players, staff, and fans looking to attend the event.
If you have already booked your trip to Melbourne in 2020, we recommend you reschedule any bookings where possible. Your purchased tickets for 2020 still remain fully valid for the Melbourne Esports Open in 2021.
The Intel Extreme Masters will be returning to the Melbourne Esports Open in 2021 also, with all tickets purchased in 2020 staying valid for next year's event. Stay tuned for more information on the Melbourne Esports Open 2021.
The 2020 League of Legends Oceanic Pro League (OPL) Grand Final will still take place on Friday 28 August 2020 – further details to be released by Riot Games in due course. The top two OPL teams from Split 2, starting Friday 5 June, will compete for a coveted spot at the League of Legends 10th World Championships, set to be hosted in China.
