Valorant Masters Reykjavik will feature 12 teams that have qualified from Challengers events across the globe.
EMEA is currently the highest-seeded region with three representatives competing in the event.
VCT Masters Reykjavik kicks off on 10th April with the grand finals set to take place on 24th April.

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.

Valorant Masters Reykjavik: Overview

This year Riot Games is updating the Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) Circuit Points structure to more heavily reward performances at international events. Additionally, the top seeds from North America, EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa), APAC (Asia-Pacific), and the top seed from the winner of the LATAM (Latin America) and Brazil playoff will get seeded deeper in the bracket, while the remaining teams will need to battle from earlier rounds of competition.
