The League of Legends Pro League (LPL) in China was the first major league to begin in January. After nine weeks of regular season gameplay, it will head into the LPL Spring 2022 Playoffs.

2021 World Champions Edward Gaming is among the top 10 teams that have qualified, alongside 2021 Mid-Season Invitational champions Royal Never Give Up.
