The Valorant Champions Tour will have challenger series of events, regional tournaments with an open qualification system

The Valorant Champions Tour is Riot Games’ first official attempt at a global circuit for stoking competitive Valorant. Conceptualized out of the early success of the First Strike events, the Champions Tour is a year-long circuit of regional competition concluding in a Champions event to decide the first world champion.

Valorant Champions Tour format

This tour will start with the Challenger series of events and regional tournaments with an open qualification system. There will be three sets of Challenger events with three weekends each. The open qualifiers will see eight teams compete each weekend. The top four teams from the first weekend will bypass the open qualifiers for the second weekend.

The top four from the second weekend will advance to the Challenger Final while the bottom four shall bypass the third weekend’s qualifiers. Finally, the top four from the third weekend will also advance to the Challenger Final. This Challenger Final determines which teams will represent their regions at one of just three Master events.

Teams who compete in the three Masters events will earn points towards qualifying to the world championship event, Champions. Also, the team that wins the final Masters event will qualify directly for Champions regardless of their point’s total. After that final Masters event, four Last Chance qualifiers will produce the final four teams for Champions.
