VCT Masters Tokyo 2023: VALORANT scores, schedule, and format

One of the best crowds in VALORANT will be there.

There will only be one single Masters event in the 2023 VALORANT Champions Tour calendar, but the June tournament set to kick off in the heart of Japan is sure to be an exhilarating one.

Masters Tokyo will feature 12 teams from across the major VALORANT regions: Americas, EMEA, Pacific, and China. $1 million is on the line, as is an additional Champions 2023 spot for the region of the team that claims the trophy, much like how Fnatic ensured a fourth EMEA squad would attend Tokyo by winning at VCT LOCK//IN.

This will be the first international meeting of teams since LOCK//IN, and while much has changed across the VCT ecosystem, the regional rivalries are still alive and well. These rivalries will manifest in an exciting final two days inside the massive Makuhari Messe arena.

How to watch VCT Masters Tokyo 2023

The official broadcast will be available to watch on the main VALORANT channels on both Twitch and YouTube. Additional broadcasts will be available in other languages as well, as will various co-streams.

VCT Masters Tokyo 2023 format

VCT Masters Toyko will follow the same 12-team format used at Masters Reykjavik and Copenhagen last year. The top four teams in seeding will be seeded directly into the eight-team double-elimination playoff bracket:

  • Team Liquid (EMEA first seed)
  • Fnatic (EMEA second seed)
  • LOUD (Americas first seed)
  • Paper Rex (Pacific first seed)

The remaining eight teams have been split into two groups of four, with each group making up its own GSL-style double-elimination group. In the group stage, two wins mean qualifying for the playoffs, while two losses mean elimination.

Group A

  • NRG (Americas second seed)
  • Natus Vincere (EMEA fourth seed)
  • EDward Gaming (China second seed)
  • T1 (Pacific third seed)

Group B

  • DRX (Pacific second seed)
  • Attacking Soul Esports (China first seed)
  • FUT Esports (EMEA third seed)
  • Evil Geniuses (Americas third seed)

All matches will be best-of-three, except for the lower final and grand final, which will be best-of-five.
