France at the Gaming Epicenter
The potential presence of Karmine Corp in the LEC, based on rumors alone, is already placing France as a major player in the 2024 League of Legends esports ecosystem. The icing on the cake, however, is undoubtedly Paris’s selection as the semifinals venue.
Karmine Corp, known for being one of the most impactful and renowned clubs in the esports arena, has been confirmed by Wooloo to join the LEC. Reports suggest that the organization aims for a full-fledged presence in the competition, without any collaborations with teams like Astralis.
The addition of this “blue wall” to the European scene, a club capable of filling stadiums with their events, is generating anticipation and hope among French fans, already counting days for the semifinals.

Paris: Center Stage Once Again?
Wooloo’s report, via Sheep Esports, confirms that the semifinals will take place in the majestic city of Paris. The city has already proven itself as a stellar host, being the venue for the 2019 Worlds final, where G2 Esports fell to FunPlus Phoenix.

Future Venues on the Horizon
With Paris now confirmed, questions arise about the next cities to join the venue list. Barcelona has been rumored heavily in recent weeks as a potential favorite. Will we see group stages or quarterfinals on Spanish soil? Only time will tell.
Semifinals in Doubt
As we await more details about League of Legends Worlds 2024, fans have more than enough reasons to be thrilled. France is gearing up to welcome the world’s best teams in a tournament that promises to be unforgettable.
