Our League of Legends Worlds 2018 Group Stage guide contains a match schedule, qualifying team details and an official stream of the event.

The Group Stage of Worlds 2018 gets under way in just a couple of days from now, and the show moves onto Busan, South Korea for the next stage of the tournament.

There are 16 teams taking part in this stage of Worlds 2018. 12 of those have qualified for the Group Stage directly, while four have been chosen as part of the Play-In Stage that took place earlier this month.

Teams have been separated into four groups, with each group playing a double round-robin, best-of-one format.

The two best-performing teams will then advance to the final Knockout Stage of Worlds 2018, which takes place across a number of South Korean venues throughout the second half of October.

In our Worlds 2018 Group Stage guide, we've gathered together all the information you need to know, from the qualifying team, to stream details, and a schedule of who's playing who in the tournament.
