Riot has Released the Play-In Stage Schedule

Worlds begins on September 23 and this year Riot switched things up by introducing a play-in stage before the group stage.

There are 4 groups of three teams in the play-in stage and the four winners of those groups will take up positions that are left empty in the group stage. In case you missed it, you can find the groups here.

The four teams will play each other in a round-robin tournament and the top two teams will proceed to the knockout stage. The winner of the knockout stage series will be the team that moves on to the Group Stage. You can see five days of the play-in stage action here.
