Yesterday, the final team from Europe’s LEC locked in its spot at the 2022 League of Legends World Championship, as Fnatic clinched the league’s fourth berth at Worlds. This season marks the Fnatic’s sixth consecutive trip to the World Championship. And for the LEC as a whole, Fnatic’s clinching is noteworthy in that it confirmed that the same European teams would be headed to Worlds for the third consecutive season.
Across the last three editions of Worlds, the same four teams have represented Europe at the tournament: Fnatic, G2 Esports, Rogue, and MAD Lions. That same crop of squads will attend the tournament this year, although the order in which they are seeded has not yet been determined.

The same four teams went to Worlds in 2020, with three of the four attending the tournament in 2021, as the LEC only had three Worlds berths last season. G2 missed the tournament last year, while MAD, Rogue, and Fnatic attended.
