Riot Teams Up With Intel For 2022 Intel Arabian Cup

Riot Games recently agreed to a partnership with Intel to sponsor this year’s Intel Arabian Cup (IAC). Thanks to this partnership, the 2022 IAC now boasts a prize pool of $130,000.

To celebrate the upcoming launch of the third annual IAC, Riot and Intel hosted a virtual press conference with several well-known executives. Some of the event’s key speakers were Karim Hachani (Head of Publishing MENA at Riot Games), Marcus Kennedy (Intel’s General Manager of Client Computing Group — Gaming and Esports Segment), and Ali Riza Kucuk (Intel’s Regional Consumer Director — Middle East, Turkey and Africa).

“We listened to feedback from previous participating teams and with the ongoing support of Intel, we have reworked the format of this year’s Intel Arabian Cup,” said Karim Hachani. “The new format will not only significantly enhance the experience but also launch new tournaments based on our gaming titles which will help attract more experienced and aspiring players, so they can be part of what has become one of the most popular gaming tournaments in the region. This is another important step to nurture the incredible talent that we have in this region and we look forward to seeing some enthralling matches over the next few months.”

This year’s version of the Intel Arabian Cup has been “revamped.” For the first time, the series is expected to feature separate competitions for hit Riot games like League of Legends, VALORANT, and League of Legends: Wild Rift.

The Intel Arabian Cup is expected to begin on May 20th. The tournament series will reportedly run through July 10th.
