With that said it would make sense for the two companies to be working on expanding League of Legends' reach beyond PC.

A mobile League of Legends title could add a whole other dimension to the mobile gaming scene. "State Farm has a rich history of sponsoring some of the biggest sports and athletes in the world, and we were thrilled to be their first-ever sponsorship in the esports space at the start of our 2018 season".

The report comes from Reuters, which spoke to three anonymous sources with knowledge of Riot and Tencent's plans.

League of Legends creators Riot Games and its major shareholder, China's Tencent Holdings, have begun development on a mobile version of the hit game, according to a Reuters report. The sources say that this project has been under way for over a year now, but completion might arrive in 2019.

That said, American interest in League of Legends has been buoyed in recent weeks by the Mid-Season Invitational runs of organizations such as Team Liquid and G2 Esports, whose worldwide success broke Asian teams' stranglehold on the competitive metagame and captured the hearts of western spectators. Now, the wildly popular MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) game may be making the move to mobile devices sometime in the near future.

As NASCAR-owned venues, flexibility in scheduling will be easier to attain, especially as track contracts are set to expire by 2021.

Sorry, mobile games fans! Though the news isn't official, it feels long overdue with how much Tencent has invested in mobile gaming in recent years (they're also behind PUBG Mobile and mobile MOBA Arena of Valor).

"League of Legends is like the World Cup whereas Honour of Kings is just the Asia Cup".

League of Legends is the most popular desktop-based game ranked by number of unique users in a month, with 24.7% of all core PC gamers in the world playing the game in April, Newzoo said, without disclosing an absolute figure.

Tencent bought a majority stake in Riot in 2011 and made it fully owned in 2015.
