Mercedes Benz and Riot Games Unveil Custom-Fitted Championship Rings for Worlds Winners
Each player on the winning team will receive personalized 18-carat ring with distinct markings.
Mercedez Benz and Riot Games have teamed up to award the Worlds 2021 winning team with a commemorative to mark their victory. Each member of the Worlds 2021 winning team will receive custom-fitted championship rings.
“Championship rings are a storied tradition in sports, synonymous with the highest achievements and unmatched excellence,” said Naz Aletaha, Riot Games Global Head of League of Legends Esports. “Since the start of our partnership in 2020, Mercedes-Benz has helped elevate and celebrate the best-of-the best in LoL Esports, and we are thrilled to bring together our shared love for design and innovation to make a resounding mark on the crowning achievement of our sport.”
Worlds 2021 Champions Will receive Championship Rings
The players will receive the rings alongside the Summoner’s Cup in Reykjavik, Iceland. Each player will receive a personalized championship ring with the player’s summoner name and team tricode in the custom-fitted piece. The ring will reflect the iconic blue and silver color palette of the Summoner’s Cup, with distinct features and markings unique to the 2021 LoL Esports season.
"The Ring was a challenge that we gladly accepted. In the end, we succeeded in bringing together the identities and design languages of both partners in this unique Ring design,” said Steffen Köhl, Head of Advanced Exterior Design at Mercedes-Benz. “We are looking forward to the moment when the winners are presented with the ring at the Trophy Ceremony. There is a real piece of Mercedes DNA in it."
The Championship Rings will be handcrafted by the artisans at GOOD ART HLYWD in Los Angeles. Each ring is made from 18 karat white gold with a custom-cut sapphire jewel, and a diamond encased in the Summoner’s hands.
Mercedes-Benz and Riot Games will also release a documentary that provides insight into the creation process of the rings. The documentary will be available on the League of Legends Esports YouTube channel.
