Hands up if you think all sporting events tend to sound the same. Furthermore, the good news is that there will be a unique soundtrack for the upcoming League of Legends Worlds Finals.

That means you won’t be hearing “Eye of the Tiger” five times per day. Or “Thunderstruck” by AC/DC. Or that Gary Glitter song.

League of Legends Worlds Finals

For the League of Legends Worlds Finals, Universal Music has hired 14 very well-known artists.

Those artists have come up with six songs specially for the event. For a reminder of how the work has taken place, consider a camp in July in Shanghai. Included, however, have been Gong, Chiyo, Matzka, and others.

Also and furthermore, Xiao Junfeng, Chris Lyon, Rabitt, Nia Yank, and Tian Mi. Those artists are mostly from China. They gathered with the specific goal of writing ESports songs.

However, the League of Legends Worlds Finals have been announced for Pudong Soccer Stadium. That is a new stadium in Shanghai.

Look for the finals to unfold September 25 to October 31 in Shanghai at Pudong Soccer Stadium.

A very big audience

There will be a very big audience for the songs. After all, a lot of people watch the League of Legends finals. How many? More people watch it than any other ESports event.

In a press release, Universal president of Australia and Asia Pacific Andrew Jenkins said a goal has been exposing Chinese music stars to a worldwide audience.

“We set up our Beijing office with this in mind, appointing a best-in-class local management team with a shared goal of focusing on developing the rich potential of Chinese songwriters and allowing them to shine,” he said.

“Putting songwriters first, allowing originality and artistry to shine and providing a natural platform for creative people to collaborate were the key goals for the Shanghai songwriting camp.”

Mike Usinger once took the better part of two years to finish Grand Theft Auto. Over the course of his career he has written about everything from eSports to music to movies to travel.
