For the first time in VALORANT history, Riot Games is hosting a major international S-tier event in China as Shanghai welcomes some of the top talent from around the globe. From tournament favorites to dark horses and every team in between, there’s a squad for any fan who will be watching the festivities when the tournament takes place from Thursday, May 23 to Sunday, June 9.

Although America’s defending Masters Madrid champions aren’t heading over to Shanghai, 100 Thieves, G2 Esports, and Leviatán will be attending in their place as the region’s representatives. They’ll need to fight against dominant challengers like Fnatic, Paper Rex, Edward Gaming, and Gen.G as the rest of the world collides in an attempt at glory.

VCT Masters Shanghai 2024 format and teams

Similar to Masters Madrid, the teams in Shanghai will be placed into an exciting Swiss stage to start the tournament that concludes with a riveting double-elimination bracket stage to decide a champion.

To kick things off, every first-place team from each major VCT region will be given a bye into the playoff stage, while the rest of the squads will need to fight through the Swiss stage. These teams will be drawn into matchups from May 23 to 27 and are tasked with getting two series victories before suffering two series losses. Each match will be a best-of-three, and teams with the same record after each round will face off against each other until four teams remain.

Those four teams from the Swiss stage will move into the bracket stage, where they’ll face the top teams from Americas, China, Pacific, and EMEA. Eight teams will enter, but only one will come out victorious.
