All four VCT 2024 leagues have played through their own regional Kickoff tournaments, which each produced two teams that earned Masters Madrid spots from each region, for a total of eight teams heading to the event. The tournament will begin with a Swiss-style stage, with teams needing to secure two wins before securing two losses, before progressing into a double-elimination bracket. The Swiss format is new for 2024, with slight adjustments in the new VCT structure and points system.

With all the regional Kickoff tournaments beginning to wrap up, here are all the VALORANT teams that we know have officially qualified for Masters Madrid so far.

All teams qualified for VCT Masters Madrid

The two top-finishing teams from each region’s Kickoff tournament will qualify for Madrid. Each region has one higher and one lower-seeded team, the champion and runner-up of the Kickoff tournament, respectively.

In the first round of the Madrid Swiss Stage, first-place teams will face off against second-place teams, but teams from the same region will not face each other in the first round.
