The first major international Teamfight Tactics tournament, the Galaxies Championship, is set to kick off on September 3. 16 of the best players from around the world will put their skills to the test in the Convergence, with $200,000 on the line.
TFT esports is a tiny, budding scene, dwarfed by other Riot titles like Valorant and League of Legends. However, the developer is still looking to help support the best players across the world.
The TFT Galaxies Championship to mark the end of Set 3 is the first major international endeavor in the game’s 18 month history. 16 players from across the globe will have the chance to prove themselves as not only their region’s best TFT player, but the best in the world.
16 qualified, but only one can be Champion.
Tune in for the Galaxies Championship on September 3 – 5 for high-skill competition and a sneak peek at the upcoming set!

The TFT Galaxies Championship will take place over two days. The first day will split the top 16 into two different lobbies. They’ll play five games, with the top four from each lobby at the end of the day making it to the final day.
The finals will work a bit differently though. It’ll be a race to 18 points — equal to three third-places, or a win and a second-place, for example — to get to Championship Point. Then, all that needs to happen is win a game. Claim victory, and that player will then claim the crown and a lion’s share of the prize pool.
