If you’ve been wanting to know the answer to the question “Can I transfer my Garena account to Riot,” then you’ve come to the right place.

Riot Games has ended its partnership with Garena and taken back League of Legends (LoL) and Teamfight Tactics (TFT). These games are now accessible on Riot Games’ official multi-game client, along with Valorant and Legends of Runeterra on PC.

Follow these easy steps to ensure a seamless transfer process from your Garena account to your Riot Games account.

You need the following to start the migration:

  • A Garena League account with data progression – Your account must show some signs of progression (champion mastery, ranked games in your match history, honor or challenge progress, etc.) or include unlocked/purchased content (RP, skins, etc.) to be eligible for a transfer.
  • A Riot League account with the same server as your Garena League/TFT account – If you already have a Riot Account with League/TFT progress or content, your two accounts must have the same server for linking to work. For example, if you played on a Vietnam Garena League Account, you will need to transfer your Riot Account to Vietnam to successfully link both accounts.
