Global Esports CEO Pens Message to Valorant Fans Following Visa and Travel Delay
All that needed to be said, has been said.
One of the partner teams for the Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) 2023: Pacific League, Global Esports, is still not present in Seoul, South Korea in full force as certain members (players and management) from India continue facing travel delays due to not having attained their visas on time.
After all members of the organization's Valorant team failed to attend the opening ceremony, VCT 2023: Pacific League - Face Off, which was held earlier today on 22nd March, Rushindra "Salbatic" Sinha - CEO of Global Esports penned an extensive message for all fans and supporters.
"Sometimes things don't go as planned, and unfortunately ALL of us couldn't be there for the opening ceremony of the Pacific League in Seoul," said Rushindra, further explaining their current situation and how they are going to face such issues in the short term.

Four members from India have still not attained their visas for South Korea - Rushindra Sinha, Vatsal Uniyal, Ganesh "SkRossi" Gangadhar, and Abhirup "Lightningfast" Choudhury.
This resulted in them missing out on the opening ceremony of the league which was held earlier today comprising of fun segments, a unique showmatch, and even an interview section towards the end.
It was a sore moment for all the fans and supporters of Global Esports but Rushindra reached out to them via a public message in a bid to explain their situation, "Please know and understand that all the parties involved are operating to the maximum of their capabilities to ensure the smooth running of the organization and the league. Everyone is putting their best foot forward and doing what needs to be done."
He reasoned that for the viewers this is 'sports and entertainment' but for them it is their 'job and livelihood', once again stating that they are doing everything possible and not holding back from trying whatever needs to be done.
As for the delay in their travel to Seoul where the league is being organized, Rushindra pointed out that it is not just a visa-related issue but Global Esports is doing a lot of other things like registering a company in South Korea, obtaining the required approvals from the shareholders, and keeping the long term sustainability/scalability quotient in mind.
"While it may seem like things are getting deleted in the short term, in reality we are setting the ground work for a much better future and appreciate the extreme passion that each and every one of you have for not just the game and the players, but even for the organization," says Rushindra.
Global Esports is scheduled to go up against T1 on 25th March. This is the team's opening match of the VCT 2023: Pacific League and is just three days away. Hopefully, things will get better for the organization as they try and resolve all issues as fast as possible.
