Valorant Masters Reykjavik: Everything You Need to Know
2022’s first Valorant Masters event will take place in Reykjavik, Iceland which was also home to Masters Stage Two last year. With 16 teams set to compete for a sizeable chunk of Valorant Circuit Points, the stakes are as high as possible. Riot Games chose Iceland as the location because it continues to be favorable for LAN events despite travel restrictions across the globe. The international event is set to kick off on 10th April and it will conclude with the grand final on 24th April.
