Champions Tour Structure

The VALORANT Champions Tour features three levels of competition: Challengers, Masters, and Champions. Challengers focus on regional competition and are organized both by Riot and top-tier tournament partner operators like Nerd Street Gamers. Masters events are larger, taking place only three times a year, and feature teams who represent the best talent from their region. Finally and ultimately, Champions are the apex of the season, a two-week long tournament with the top 16 teams from around the world in attendance, where one team will be crowned the first VALORANT global Champion.
