Valorant Champions Tour's first season is coming to a conclusion with the final 16 teams set to compete next month for the world championship trophy.
Valorant Champions will take place in Berlin from 1st December to 12th December 2021.
Riot Games is offering $1 Million in prize money for its inaugural VCT season.

VCT Champions is set to kick off from 1st December 2021 with the top 16 Valorant teams competing for glory. The winner will be awarded the very first Valorant world championship. With three stages of events and Last Chance Qualifiers taking place throughout 2021, the year-long Valorant Champions Tour event is now down to the final 12 days of action. With $1 Million in prize money and the championship trophy at stake, this is going to be Valorant’s biggest event yet.

Valorant Champions: Format

The tournament will consist of the GSL style group play, followed by an eight-team single elimination bracket. Teams were first sorted into four draw pools based on a combination of their respective final placements at Challenger events and the strength of their region.

● Pool 1 - NA #1, EMEA #1, KR, M3 Winner

● Pool 2 - NA #2, EMEA #2, LATAM, BR #1

● Pool 3 - NA LCQ, EMEA LCQ, SEA #1, JP

● Pool 4 - BR 2, SEA 2, SAm LCQ, APAC LCQ

During the Group Stage, teams will compete through a four team, double elimination bracket to identify two winners from each group. In the first round of each group, teams from Pool 1 will face teams from Pool 4 and teams from Pool 2 will face teams from Pool 3.

After the Group Stage, a random draw will seed the Knockout Stage. The four teams who advance out of their group in 1st place will be randomly assigned a 2nd place team from a different group. The teams then will play through an eight-team elimination bracket, with the first round seeing teams who placed 1st play against teams who placed 2nd.

The single-elimination bracket will then decide the fate of the final eight teams with one team coming out on top as this year’s Valorant world champions.
