VALORANT teams are slowly being informed that they have been accepted into a partnership with Riot Games to compete in one of three international VALORANT leagues next year. 

The league is set to begin next year in February with a kick-off tournament. This event will feature all 30 partnered teams from across the world competing against each other in São Paulo, Brazil.

The Americas league consists of 100 Thieves, Sentinels, Cloud9, NRG, Evil Geniuses, FURIA, LOUD, MIBR, KRÜ Esports, and Leviatán.

Dot Esports reported that TSM would miss out on a spot in the Americas league, while Kevin Hitt reported that OpTic would likely miss out as well. Multiple sources, including those who spoke to Dot Esports, have said that G2 was originally slated to receive a spot with an NA roster, but the recent controversy surrounding owner Carlos has led Riot to reverse that decision.

XSET, Version1, FaZe Clan, and The Guard all did not make partnership.

The EMEA league features Fnatic, Team Vitality, Team Liquid, Karmine Corp, Team Heretics, KOI, Giants, Na’Vi, FUT Esports, and BBL Esports.

FPX, Acend, OG, G2, and MAD Lions are a handful of the many teams that did not make partnership.

T1 and Gen.G, organizations based in Korea, have been competing in NA VALORANT over the past couple years. No Oceanic teams are partnered.
