Several major Apex Legends London LAN events will take place in the UK in 2023, starting with the first at the Copperbox Arena in February.
The Split 1 Apex Legends Global Series Playoffs (ALGS) will run from February 2nd to 5th, and tickets for the Apex Legends February 2023 event are on sale from 4pm GMT on December 22nd.
They’re priced from £20 on the Thursday to £100 for a full four-day pass.
There are also other ALGS Year 3 live events taking place in London in 2023, including the Split 2 Playoffs from June 8th to 11th and the Year 3 Championship in summer, with more details on those to be revealed at a later date.
Apex Legends esports fans will be able to watch the best teams from each of the ALGS Pro League’s five regions in person on UK soil for the first time.
The first-place team at the Split 1 playoffs will receive the $300,000 top prize.
The UK has a mix of casting talent, players and teams operating in Apex Legends esports.
Fnatic reached top four at the Apex Legends Championship Series 2022 event in Raleigh, North Carolina, earlier this year, and British emergency sub player Jmw won an Apex Legends LAN with Reignite after a last minute flight to Sweden also in 2022.
And last month, the ESL Premiership ran an Apex Legends tournament in the UK and Ireland for the first time.
This is another big esports event taking place in London next year.
Last week, Esports News UK broke the news that London will be hosting the 2023 League of Legends MSI event.
And earlier in 2022, Moist Esports won the Rocket League London Major, which also took place at the Copperbox Arena.
‘London is guaranteed to host an incredible show – I’m looking forward to being in the middle of the action’
Hannah Marie looks ahead to the February 2023 event and providing coverage for Esports News UK
“With the ALGS Playoffs set to raise the bar higher than ever, London is guaranteed to host an incredible show. More than a few teams have a shot at the title after this season’s intense twists and turns, so I am particularly excited to see them battle it out at the Copperbox.
“In the NA and EMEA regions alone, the regional finals saw impressive surprise performances from Fire Beavers, Esports Arena, Aurora Gaming and The Guard.
“If Esports Arena can burst through the ranks from unqualified for LAN to winning regionals (bagging them a secure qualification in the process), February is anyone’s game!
“I’ll be looking at the established favourites, the underdogs and everyone in-between – as we saw in League of Legends this year, you can’t underestimate anyone. I’m looking forward to being in the middle of the action and cannot wait to meet more of the wonderful Apex community there!”
