Highlights of Skyesports Valorant League 2021

The 2021 edition might see the same cities competing from last year, as the team owners remain unchanged. It is unlikely that team owners would want to reshuffle a combination that worked successfully in the last event.

The organizer has also mentioned that this edition will come with a LAN feature, as the finals will be held offline. This would be the first time Valorant will organize a LAN-enabled final.

The game was launched last year amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. While fans viewed the event enthusiastically,  the pandemic made it compulsory for an online modus operandi for the event.

  • Bengaluru
  • Mumbai
  • Chennai
  • Kolkata
