Masters Madrid is a prestigious Valorant tournament held at the Madrid Arena in Madrid, Spain.

This indoor venue, located in the city’s fairgrounds in the Casa de Campo area, boasts a seating capacity of 12,000 spectators.

Tournament format

The tournament has two main components: the newly introduced Swiss stage and playoff bracket.

The Swiss stage consists of three rounds and narrows the initial eight teams to the top four.

To progress from the Swiss Stage, teams must secure two match wins before accumulating two losses. Each match in this stage is a best-of-three.

Before the tournament, teams are grouped into four matches. Winners of their respective Kickoff events face off against all the second-place finishers.

Notably, no teams from the same region are matched up in the first round.
