The Valorant Champions Tour: North America (NA) Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ) is set to kick off next month from 12th October and eight teams will be competing in the upcoming event.

Two teams from Oceania were originally scheduled to join the upcoming event but travel restrictions and COVID guidelines have prevented them from competing in the upcoming event. Riot Games has updated its original schedule and brackets for the upcoming event to account for the recent change. Even though the upcoming event will be played on patch 3.07, it will not have the Fracture map enabled.
