A summoner icon is an avatar picture that represents you to your friends and other players. The icon is displayed on a summoner's profile page and appears next to the names of their friends in their friend list (but only if they are online). It will also appear when you are in chat rooms, custom games or in arranged teams.
There is a growing variety of summoner icons in League of Legends and every summoner account is given 29 standard icons. Some icons are only offered for a short time during events, holidays or awarded to ranked players at the end of a season. Others can be unlocked by purchasing directly from the in-client store with RP (and IP in rare cases) or by purchasing an ultimate-tier Champion Skin. There are also icons that allow you to support your favorite League of Legends team in eSports. With the collection of icons expanding, every summoner can find a special avatar to show off.
These are the 29 standard summoner icons that every account is given:
These six icons were made available with improvements to the Team Builder queue on July 30, 2014. They each represent a unique champion role. To unlock an icon of a certain role, a summoner must play five games with that role using the Team Builder queue.
Announcement made by Lyte:
To make sure you’re getting into game fast enough to feel these changes, we also overhauled the rules for adding solo players to teams. We’ve seen improved queue times across the board, and if you want to read more, check out my deep dive into all of the changes in this update.
With new reasons to start using Team Builder, we’ve designed a series of new summoner icon rewards for playing the queue. Because Team Builder’s champion select accounts for role, the new rewards are earned by playing your way. After you play five games as one role, tracked in-client, you’ll unlock the icon of that role instantly. And yes, if you’re more of a generalist (or a completionist), you can unlock all six icons.
So join us in the revamped Team Builder, and show off your favorite role with your new icons!

Season 2 reward icons were distributed along with season 1 reward icons at the end of season 2. They were based on the highest rating a summoner earned during 2 month window near the end of season 2. This window ranged from September 12, 2012 until November 6, 2012.
The icons were determined based on both the rating (tier) achieved and the queue in which the rating was achieved. Having a higher tier rating would automatically unlock the lower tier icons as well. The required ratings can be found here.
There are 5 different tiers that could be achieved: bronze, silver, gold, platinum and diamond. Each tier is represented by the colour of the chalice on the icon.
Summoners could get icons for 3vs3 team queue, solo 5vs5 queue and 5vs5 team queue. Each queue is represented by a gem on a certain part of the chalices. Gems around the top of the chalice represent 3vs3 queue. A gem in the middle represents solo queue and gems around the base represent 5vs5 queue. When a summoner has the requirements for all the queues in a certain tier, he or she would receive a bonus icon, that would combine all three gem ornaments into one icon.
|Season 2 icons||Solo queue||3vs3 queue||5vs5 queue||All three queues|
These icons were handed out at the end of season 2, together with the season 2 reward icons. They are based on a summoner's ranked rating at the end of season 1.
|Bronze Cup||The summoner had to have a bronze rating at the end of season 1. This would translate to having a rating between 1249 and 1399.|
|Silver Cup||The summoner had to have a silver rating at the end of season 1. This would translate to having a rating between 1400 and 1519.|
|Gold Cup||The summoner had to have a gold rating at the end of season 1. This would translate to having a rating between 1520 and 1899.|
The summoner had to have a platinum rating at the end of season 1. This would translate to having a rating of 1900 or higher.
Before Worlds started, players had a chance in obtaining summoner icons in a challenge called Worlds Pick'em.

Summoner icons on the Forums
As of March 7th 2014, Riot Games made it possible for your summoner icon to display below your name on the game's web forums, replacing grey boxes that contained a question mark. It will also update to reflect your current summoner icon if you change it.
Announcement made by Krylhos:
As you've likely noticed, Summoner icons have arrived on the forums! Begone question marks!
As you may know, at Riot we participate in a periodic hackathon known as Thunderdome. During the latest Thunderdome, a couple of us did some tinkering to make your in-client summoner icon accessible on the web. This service opened up the possibility of displaying your summoner icons within the vBulletin forums.
