Over the first two years of top-tier competitive VALORANT in the VCT, Europe as a whole has produced an incredible amount of top teams, superstars, and incredible depth across multiple regions.
Of the six international VCT events on LAN that have taken place, teams from EMEA (Europe, CIS, and Turkey) have won three of them, including the first world championship at Champions via Acend in 2021.
In addition to EMEA’s overall success at the highest level, their extensive system of VALORANT Regional Leagues (VRLs) has laid the foundation for the tier-two Challengers system set to be implemented in 2023, underneath the top-tier global leagues. One of those global leagues will be the EMEA league, featuring 10 of the best teams in the world representing partnered organizations.
There are a lot of VALORANT teams across Europe and the EMEA region, so we’ve done our best to document all of them here, starting from the top.
