Anton Ferraro, global communications lead for VALORANT Esports, said, “This year more than twenty Challenger Leagues provided organized competitions that helped develop the next generation of VALORANT talent. A robust Challenger ecosystem is imperative to ensuring the most talented teams and pros in esports select VALORANT as the game where they dedicate their time and effort. Ascension represents the culmination of our first ever Challengers Season and we think this tournament series has the potential to become one of the most exciting events on our calendar. We’re excited to share these details with all of you and we’ll be listening closely to hear your thoughts on the tournament.”

Additionally, the team that triumphs in Ascension will be given a coveted two-year promotion to the elite VCT Pacific League, enabling them to take on other partnered teams the following year.

In the following three weeks, Challenger Leagues will conclude, determining the teams for the coveted Ascension in Bangkok, Thailand.
