The VCT LOCK//IN Showmatch will take place before a live audience in Brazil and will feature some of the biggest Valorant stars.

Riot Games announced an exciting showmatch for Valorant featuring two of the best content creators. Valorant’s first showmatch is confirmed to feature North American content creator Tarik “tarik” Celik and Brazilian streamer Leonardo “frttt” Braz alongside their chosen teammates. Both tarik and frttt are not new to the Valorant scene since they have been co-streaming the Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) tournaments for quite a while now and they both command a huge chunk of the audience. This VCT LOCK//IN showmatch will be played in front of a live crowd in Brazil, stated Riot Games. 

Talking about this showmatch, Riot Games wrote, “After three weeks of non-stop competition, LOCK//IN has a few surprises left: one of which will be a do-or-die showdown with some unexpected faces.

While tarik is a part of Sentinels, Brazilian star frttt is Team Liquid’s content creator. Here’s everything we know about the VCT LOCK//IN Showmatch so far.

When is the VCT LOCK//IN showmatch?
