Riot Games to host exclusive India and South Asia Valorant Champions Tour Qualifier in …

The Indian Valorant community got some fortuitous news today, when Riot Games finally announced its plan for the shooter in the region.

In partnership with one of India’s biggest esports tournament organizers, NODWIN Gaming, Riot Games will be introducing the Valorant Conquerors Championship. This event will be the qualifying tournament for the APAC Last Chance Qualifiers, which is already a part of the 2021 Valorant Champions Tour.

When talking about the upcoming tournament, Mr. Akshat Rathee, MD & Co-Founder, NODWIN Gaming, said:

“This is a great opportunity for the entire VALORANT ecosystem in South Asia to catapult itself to stardom. A representation in the Last Chance Qualifier is much deserved looking at the richness of the community and the amount of buzz it has created in the last year. We and our friends at Riot Games have worked together to build this ladder that connects South Asia to the global roadmap of VALORANT esports, that is the VCT 2021. Looking forward to a great competition.”

Indeed the Indian or rather South Asian Valorant community is rich with talented players, and this event will finally be their shot at representing their region on the international stage.

Further elaborating on their partnership, Mr. Sukamal Pegu, Publishing Leader, India & South Asia, Riot Games said:

“We at Riot Games have been listening to our fanbase in South Asia and the growing demand to include the region in our VCT 2021 roadmap. This is our first step in unlocking esports for the region. We are very impressed with NODWIN Gaming’s portfolio of esports events and their support for VALORANT in the region and we have full confidence in their ability to deliver a world-class VALORANT event for our competitive players here.”

The winners of the APAC Last Chance Qualifier will then be able to move on to the Valorant Champions Tour global finals, which will take place later this year.
