Mobile game developer Supercell’s Clash Royale League will hold its 2019 World Finals in Los Angeles this December, the company announced today.
The event will take place on Dec. 7 at the Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall in Los Angeles, with six teams competing in front of a live audience for a share of the $400K prize pool.
As with last year’s inaugural World Finals event in Tokyo, Japan, Google Play will serve as the presenting sponsor. OGN will produce the event as part of its production deal with Supercell, which also saw the Korean league and tournament organizer oversee the CRL West and CRL Asia regions this season.
“We were so humbled by the response to last year’s inaugural CRL World Finals, so we’re overjoyed to bring Worlds stateside for another thrilling competition,” said a Supercell spokesperson, in a release. “We’ve been working hard since last year’s event to make this an even better experience for the Clash Royale community. We can’t wait to see what the world’s top players have in store for both us and fans as they showcase their talents on one of Los Angeles’ most legendary stages.”
Supercell just held the $1M Clash of Clans World Championship at ESL One Hamburg at the end of last month, and will host the $250K Brawl Stars World Championship in Busan, South Korea, on Nov. 15-17.
In October, Chinese multinational investment holding conglomerate Tencent announced that it had gained majority control in Supercell, after acquiring a majority equity voting stake in a consortium that owns 81.4% of the company.
