VCT 2021, Riot’s first official tournament circuit for VALORANT, all boils down to Champions.

The world championship will see 16 teams from around the world battle it out in a two-week-long tournament to decide the first VALORANT global champion in December.

Throughout the year, stages consisting of Challengers and Masters events will provide teams with the chance to earn circuit points and qualify for the end-of-year tournament. 

11 teams representing North America, Europe, Brazil, Latin America, Southeast Asia, Korea, and Japan will qualify for Champions via circuit points obtained over the course of the year. The winner of VCT Masters Three Berlin, which is expected to take place in September, will also automatically qualify for the tournament.
