With eSports spreading popularity around the world, more and more tournaments are taking place and if you are a fan of Valorant then you are in luck. There are so many different tournaments going on this year that we had to narrow them down to a small list of ten. Today we will share our research with you about these tournaments so you know everything there is to know. Enjoy!
1. Valorant Champions Tour
We begin our list with the most important Valorant tournament in the entire world. What makes this tournament so special is that it is actually a Tour as the name suggests, rather than one individual tournament. This allows people to simply play Valorant for a living and earn money along the way. It is the most competitive tournament and arguably the most popular tournament in the world.

2.LVP – Rising Series
Second, we have another tournament that is the most popular in Europe. It is the most popular tournament in all of Spain and has a prize money of 20,000 Euros. Even if you do not make it to the finals you have the ability to compete for minor prizes of 5,000 Euros at each stage. This tournament is special, because it gets players ready for the trip overseas and around the world to play in the Valorant Champions Tour. As you will notice many of these tournaments go hand in hand, and this is one of those tournaments.
3. Valorant Open Tour: France
Continuing with our European theme we bring you the largest tournament in all of France. It is booming and has had over 256 teams enter in the tournament only to be cut down more and more until the finals.
With a tournament of such a large scale you get the honor of seeing many skilled players go at each other game after game. In the end there will only be three teams left remaining that will compete for France on the international level.
This is one of the oldest tournaments in all of Europe, in fact this year will be the 33rd edition of the tournament. It is not as large as the French Open which is why it is second on our list. Although the competition is just as high with sixteen of the best teams in all of Europe fighting each other for the top spot. What makes this tournament different however is that it is all online, which takes out some of the fun.
5.Moscow Cybersport Series
As the name suggests, this is yet another tournament in Europe/Asia with it being held in Moscow, Russia. It is another month-long tournament, six weeks to be exact, with the final four teams being invited to play in Moscow. This tournament is in the middle of the pack, because it is another high-quality tournament but there is not much here that is not already a part of the other tournaments above.
6.Strike Arabia Grand Finals
This tournament is the first and only one on the list that takes place in the Middle East. As the name hints, it takes place in Saudi Arabia with eight teams competing after other minor selection tournaments. You may not expect Saudi Arabia to be a top dog in the world of video games, but they are pretty good at Valorant.
7.VALORANT Conquerors Championship
Moving over to the eastern part of the world we have this tournament which is hosted in South Asia. Similar to the Arabian tournament this is one of the few that are hosted in the region. This is what makes the tournament so attractive to fans and players alike. It is one of the few times that players in the area can showcase their skills for all to see. The $33,000 prize pool is also another great incentive for the teams in the tournament.
8.Nerd Street Gamers: Summer Championship
Although the name is certainly not intimidating, the level of talent that the teams have certainly is. This tournament hosts 32 teams until the grand finals where the best of the best battle it out. This is the eleventh edition of this tournament, so it does not have as much history as the rest which is why it is towards the bottom of our list. Despite its short history it is at least one of the more consistent ones. This may seem counterintuitive, but by this we mean that you know what you will see in this tournament year after year.
9.Red Bull Campus Clutch
This tournament is one of the most important ones in the world, because it is truly an international competition. It takes the best 12 teams from around the world and smashes them together in one tournament. Even though this may sound exciting it is towards the bottom of our list, because it is so quick. It only lasts a day or two, so hopefully you are not busy during that time. Although highlights are shown all over social media, it does not do the tournament justice for those that watched it in real time.
10.VCT: Game Changers
Last but not least we have VCT: Game Changers which is very important because Riot Games themselves created the tournament. What also makes this tournament specialize is that it focuses on teams made up of minorities such as women and people of color. This tournament is still top-notch and has some of the best action that you will see. The prizes are also huge, but that is more of an incentive for the players, not the fans. Either way if you are someone that can relate with minorities, this will certainly be a perfect tournament for you.
After reading this article we hope that you have a newfound understanding of what makes these tournaments the most important in Valorant. If you don’t have access to these, don’t worry because there are so many more, these are just the important ones. Feel free to share your thoughts with us about this list!
