Valorant Champions 2023 will bring the curtain down on Riot Games’ official tournament season. Here are all the teams that have qualified for the showpiece event.

After world championships in Germany and Turkey, Riot Games is finally taking its biggest Valorant competition to North America (more specifically Los Angeles), rewarding the region for the passion it has exhibited for the game since its release.

Valorant Champions 2023 will take place from August 6 through 26 across two iconic venues in LA, the Shrine Auditorium and the Kia Forum. Sixteen of the world’s best teams from EMEA, Asia-Pacific, the Americas and China will be in attendance, fighting for the trophy that went to Acend in 2021 and to LOUD in 2022.

In the Americas and Pacific regions, the top three teams in the league automatically qualified for Valorant Champions. DRX, Paper Rex and T1 all came through the Pacific league, while LOUD, NRG and Evil Geniuses punched their tickets to Valorant Champions via the Americas league.

The three EMEA spots, meanwhile, were determined by the results of VCT Masters Tokyo. As the best-placed teams from the region in Japan, Fnatic, Team Liquid and FUT qualified for Valorant Champions.

Thanks to Fnatic’s victory in Japan, EMEA gets an extra slot at Valorant Champions. This means that both the winner and the runner-up of the last-chance qualifier will make it to the season-ending event.

Here are all the teams that have qualified for Valorant Champions 2023. The list will be updated as more teams secure spots at the event.
