Valorant enthusiasts from all over South Asia have an exciting month of esports action ahead of them. Hosting the best teams from the region, Skyesports Champions Series (SCS) will determine South Asia's representatives for the upcoming APAC Challengers.
SCS will be the primary route of entry for teams from India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Maldives, and Bangladesh. The tournament is split into 3 phases, including Open Qualifiers for India and the rest of South Asia, a Group Stage League, and the playoffs.
Eight teams from these regions have already qualified for the tournament based on their VCT 2022 Stage 1 results. Joining them in the Group Stage will be the 4 teams who will qualify through the Open Qualifiers for India and the rest of SA.

As Stage 2 of the Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) 2022 is around the corner, fans can't wait to see their favorite teams compete on the big stage. Due to VCT being a year-long tournament circuit, teams from Stage 1 are rewarded with a comfortable entry into Stage 2 of the tournament.
Here are the 8 participants who have been invited to the SCS - Road to VCT 2022 event:
- Velocity Gaming (India)
- Global Esports (India)
- Enigma Gaming (India)
- Full Power Gaming (Pakistan)
- Revenant Esports (India)
- Exceeli Esports (Bangladesh)
- Khumbu Esports (Nepal)
- Union Gaming (Sri Lanka)
The top 8 teams from the Valorant Conquerors Championship (VCC) in VCT Stage 1 are comprised of some of the best teams from the region. While Full Power Gaming and Revenant Esports are two organizations that didn't compete in Stage 1, they currently represent rosters that participated in the VCC playoffs.
The org-less God Particles, who enjoyed an incredible run in VCC 2022, were acquired by Revenant Esports earlier in March. Full Power Gaming, on the other hand, was formed from the remnants of Team Snakes, formerly known as Team Exploit, during the time of VCC.
