DJ esports

Valorant Champions is set to be the first world championship for the FPS hit. Sixteen teams across the globe will be duking it out in December for the coveted prize and the title of the first Valorant world champion.

Valorant Champions is going to be the crowning jewel on VCT 2021. Every event ⁠— from Challengers to Masters Iceland and Masters Berlin ⁠— will lead to the multi-million dollar event in December.

Here’s what you need to know about Valorant Champions 2021, including which teams have qualified and those with the best chance of making it to the top 16.


Valorant Champions 2021 details: dates, format, location

Riot has revealed the tournament will start on December 2 and finish on December 12. Champions was originally rumored to take place in LA, but Riot has confirmed that the end-of-year event will also take place in Berlin, the same as Masters 3, conflicting with their plan to host each of their international events in a different region.

Riot’s reasoning for hosting Champions in Berlin is due to the current European travel policies being friendlier and making it easier for all teams to attend.

Sixteen teams across the world will converge to fight for the title of Valorant’s first true world champion. Millions will be on the line, but the exact prize pool hasn’t been confirmed, nor has the format.

We will update you once more information becomes available.

Despite the event being more than a month away, all 16 attending teams are already locked in for Valorant Champions.

Among the teams already confirmed for the world championship is the North American squad Sentinels, who locked in their spot after winning Masters 2: Reykjavik as they earned enough circuit points to not miss out. CIS giants Gambit secured direct entry into Champions after winning Masters 3: Berlin, which means that there will be four EMEA teams at the end-of-the-year event.
