Valorant fans won’t have to wait until the start of the VCT 2023 season to witness the high-level competitive play.

Riot Games recently announced a complete list of third-party tournaments scheduled to take place during the Valorant off-season.

The goal of the tournaments is to provide teams with a “window for organized competition.” These tournaments will also show which squads improved during the off-season.

Riot Games has partnered with esports organizations and popular Valorant personalities around the world to host different types of Valorant events from October 2022 until January 2023. 

Each tournament organizer will have its own unique “OFF//SEASON” event which may include open qualifiers, show matches, and invitationals. Fans can also expect top players, established personalities, and aspiring amateurs to headline these events.
