The Campeonato Brasileiro de League of Legends (CBLoL, lit. Brazilian Championship of LoL) is the top level of professional League of Legends competition in Brazil. There are eight teams in the league. Each annual season of play is divided into two splits, spring and summer, both consisting of ten rounds of round-robin tournament play, which then conclude with play-off tournaments between the top three teams. The winners of each split qualifies for the Mid-Season Invitational and World Championship.[1]

The matches have been held since 2015 at Riot studios in São Paulo and broadcast via livestream, without an audience, except for the grand final, held in arenas like Allianz Parque, and are attended by narrators, commentators, analysts and presenters.[2] In addition to full broadcasting on official YouTube channels, Twitch, and since 2017 CBLoL has also been playing live games on SporTV, with the same coverage as Riot.[3]

Overview[edit]

The tournament has been organized since 2012, shortly after the debut of the Brazilian server, with professionalism still incipient, when it was held in just three days. In 2014, the first league championship was held: the Brazilian League - Champions Series, and in the same year the precedent of two annual competitions was inaugurated, with the holding of the Brazilian Regional Final. Since then, the two-splits format has been adopted, with each one played in the first phase in the "all against all" format, and later knockout until the grand finale.[4][5] Also in 2015 the league format with stable members was adopted, but subject to lowering and promotion of the worst placed to benefit the best of the Challenging Circuit.[6][7] Until 2014, a qualifying phase for the championship dispute was adopted.[8]

On 21 January 2020, Riot Brazil confirms CBLoL is moved to franchising.[9]
