    Why Get League Medals

    Stuff in the Shop you can buy with League Medals.

    League Medals are, essentially, a form of currency that can be used in the League Shop in Clash of Clans. They are rewards that you can only get through participating in Clan War Leagues. League Medals are used in the League Shop to trade for a variety of rewards, including Hammers, Potions, Wall Rings, and more.

    How to Get League Medals

    There are only two major requirements to fulfill to earn League Medals. First, you must be in a Clan. Additionally, you will need to be eligible for Clan War Leagues.

    How to Be in a Clan

    A view of different Clans a player could join (if they weren't already a Leader).

    Clans are exactly what they sound like—a group of people that join together to compete with other Clans. To join a Clan, you must first repair the Clan Castle. This costs 10,000 Gold. Once this is done, you can either join a Clan or create your own. To join a Clan, you can:

    • Select “Join” on a Clan that has the status “Anyone Can Join”
    • Send a request to join a Clan that has the status “Invite Only”
    • Accept an invitation sent by a Clan Elder, Leader, or Co-Leader

    You may need to meet other specified requirements to join certain Clans.

    How to Be Eligible for Clan War Leagues

    Once you’re part of a Clan, you’ll need to participate in Clan Wars Leagues to earn those League Medals. To participate, your Clan Leader must select you to be part of the roster. The Leader must have signed up for the War Leagues within two days of the start date, as Clan War Leagues happen only once each month. The Wars will be against other Clans of a similar level, and they will last for about a week.

    The number of League Medals you earn by participating in Clan War Leagues is dependent on individual performance, Clan performance, and other bonuses. The more Stars that are earned through the War League, the more League Medals you will get by the end. Your Clan Leader and Co-Leaders can also award members bonus League Medals.
