OPPO has announced its partnership with Riot Games to sponsor the 2021 League of Legends World Championship (Worlds 2021). This is part of the two companies’ multi-year deal signed in 2019.
OPPO will present the most valuable players award to the player that will truly impress on the Rift in the Finals. Additionally, the company will bring game highlights and interviews of the pro players.

We are constantly concentrating on delivering nothing short of excellence and creating unique experiences for our users.”
