Esports News UK is hosting a special Worlds 2023 grand final viewing party in London – powered by the Predator Orion X – complete with breakfast, tea and coffee.
The League of Legends World Championship grand final takes place this year on Sunday November 19th 2023, and timezone differences from South Korea means it will get underway from 8am GMT in the UK.
Not to be deterred by the extra early start, we’re organising an intimate breakfast viewing party at the Shoreditch Platform gaming bar, 2b Worship St, London, EC2A 2AH.
There will be tea, coffee and breakfast pastries served to guests, plus in-game goodies up for grabs, courtesy of Riot Games, and Worlds bingo. Alcohol will be available from 10am, and guests will be able to buy pizzas if the series extends well into lunchtime.
Predator Gaming will also be showing off its new super powerful Predator Orion X small upgradeable gaming PC, sporting a GeForce RTX 4090, DLSS 3, a 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900KS processor, up to 2TB of M.2 PCIe Gen 4 and 32GB DDR5, offering an unparalleled gaming journey for those who love to tinker and optimise their systems.
The Worlds 2023 final this year will be between either BLG or Weibo, and either JDG or T1.
Viewers will be able to watch all the action on the venue’s two 55-inch screens and 65-inch screen.
Tickets are priced at £10 (£11.55 including Eventbrite fees), which will include entry, two to three teas or coffees per person, plus two breakfast pastries each.
Grab your ticket here! Spaces are extremely limited, with 40 tickets available on a first come first served basis Update: This event is now over.

Tournament organiser UKEL will also be hosting more events in the future, having held MSI viewing parties earlier this year and helping to run the LoL community night at Insomnia in September.
