The Valorant Championship is an annual global esports tournament organized by Riot Games, the developer of Valorant. The tournament features teams from all around the world competing for a large prize pool and the title of Valorant World Champion.
The first Valorant Championship, called the Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) 2021, took place in December 2021 and featured teams from North America, Europe, Korea, Brazil, Japan, Southeast Asia, and Latin America. The tournament had a total prize pool of $3 million USD, with the winning team, Sentinels, taking home $1.6 million USD.
The Valorant Championship features a unique format that includes regional and international competitions. Teams compete in regional tournaments to qualify for international events, where they face off against teams from other regions. The top teams from each region then compete in the Valorant World Championship to determine the ultimate winner.
Riot Games has not announced any official details regarding the Valorant Championship for 2022 or beyond, but it’s likely that they will continue to hold the event annually. Fans can stay tuned to official Valorant social media accounts or the Valorant website for any news or updates related to future Valorant Championships.
