Father of the year: Dad wins tickets to LOL Worlds, takes his son along

Razer has named the winners of the three Golden Tickets the company is giving away to the League of Legends World Championships in Brussels – but it turns out four people are attending the event. New Zealander Michael Todd, a single father, has taken his son along for the ride.

He got the Golden Ticket!

He got the Golden Ticket!

Michael’s competition entry spoke about how both he and his son share a love of Razer products and League of Legends, making this competition a great opportunity. A perfectly timed opportunity too, as it turns out – Michael’s son’s birthday approaches, which means this once-in-a-lifetime European trip makes the perfect gift. (Michael is taking his son under his own expense.)

A Razer spokesperson explains that the company “wants to provide gamers with the best possible gaming experience they can have, whether it’s playing or cheering-on the world’s best players.”

The LoL World Championship Finals is the biggest event of the year for the game’s fans and something that many people around Asia Pacific dream to attend. Razer wants to provide something special for these devotees that they will never forget.

The prize Michael and his son will enjoy includes transportation from New Zealand to Belgium, accommodation in Brussels, and transfers to and from the event venues, starting with the semi finals held over the weekend. The winners are then treated to a bit of sight-seeing in Brussels before scooting off on a train to Berlin, where they’ll have some time to see the sights (and soak up the culture) before the Finals kick off this weekend.

We don’t know which team Michael and his son are barracking for, but it’s an all-Korean World Championship Final on Saturday (October 31st, 12:00 CET What’s that in my timezone?), as KOO Tigers take on SKT.
