Red Bull North America, Inc., in partnership with the League of Legends Championship Series, announced that Red Bull Solo Q, the ultimate 1v1 experience for amateur League of Legends® (LoL) players, is officially coming to the United States and Canada with online qualifiers opening for all players in both countries, this month. To celebrate the U.S. and Canada launch, Red Bull released all-new Red Bull Solo Q Limited Edition cans, which feature LoL champions Conqueror Alistar and Yasuo. The new Red Bull Solo Q cans will be available at participating retailers nationwide for a limited time while supplies last.
Red Bull Solo Q allows fans to make their mark by bringing LoL players to new heights! In a world where LoL is traditionally played in a 5v5 team setting, Red Bull Solo Q will settle the score and showcase individual skill with a 1v1 gameplay format. Amateurs face-off in the top lane of Summoner’s Rift and can claim victory by drawing ‘First Blood’ against opponents, destroying the opposing player’s outer turret or achieving a 100-minion creep score first.
“As a proud partner of the LCS, Red Bull always looks to impress and raise the bar for our fans year after year,” said Matt Archambault, head of NA esports partnerships and business development at Riot Games. “In celebration of this unique competition experience for our respective communities, we’re also delighted for the first-ever Red Bull Solo Q Limited Edition cans to come to market.”
Thousands of players will battle it out in multiple online 1v1 qualifiers kicking off later this summer to secure a spot in the respective U.S. and Canada Finals. Players can go from hometown hero to champion, receiving glory, prizes, and the coveted Red Bull Solo Q trophy.
Each Red Bull Solo Q Limited Edition can includes a special code on the tab that, starting August 31, 2020, unlocks leaderboard access for Solo Q, a unique Summoner Icon (limit one Icon per person) and other perks*. Details on how to register the code for leaderboard access will be shared soon. The new Red Bull Solo Q can is available in both 8.4 fl oz, 12 fl oz and 8.4 fl oz multipacks.
