Here’s the League of Legends 2021 patch schedule – every season 11 update release date

If you’re a League of Legends fan you’ll know that, approximately every couple of weeks, the multiplayer game receives a hefty update. Usually packed with shiny new Champion skins, a batch of Champion, item, and rune balance changes, fixes, and occasionally new or returning game modes, plus more, LoL patches are a hugely important part of the MOBA game. As such, it’s worth knowing when they’re due to launch. Handily, we now know when every patch of League of Legends season 11 is scheduled to debut.

As posted by Riot Games on the game’s support site, the League of Legends 2021 patch schedule kicks off with League of Legends patch 11.1 on Wednesday, January 6, 2021.

There are no exact release times detailed, but based on most of the 2020 updates, we can guess that – for the most part – the maintenance times will begin at around 03:00 PT for NA servers, 05:00 GMT for EUW servers, and 03:00 CET for EUNE servers, and last for approximately three hours. However, you’ll need to check each set of patch notes to find out exact timings.

Speaking of which, each patch hits the League PBE for a round of testing before it heads to the live game, so we can get an idea of what’s on the way beforehand. Be sure to check out our patch notes for each update, which we keep updated with everything you need to know ahead of launch.
