EU Valorant Champions Tour 2021 Stage 2 Challengers One: Format and other details
The EU Challengers One main event will have single-elimination brackets where all matches except the final will be best-of-3s. The grand final is going to be a best-of-5.
The winner and other teams placing at the top of the tournament will be one step closer to Reykjavik, Iceland, where Masters Two will be held in an offline environment. Acend won Masters One, beating Team Heretics in an exciting 3:2 finish in the grand finals.
Unlike the NA VCT Stage 2 Challengers One, the EU counterpart has both the champion and the runner-up in the participating teams’ list.
The matches will commence on April 6th at 11 am EDT and will be live streamed on www.twitch.tv/valorant. EU Valorant fans can see for themselves whether the recent backlash from the community regarding the lack of broadcast coverage was able to change Riot's mind.
The EU Challenger One event has a prizepool of €35,000 ~ $41,341, of which the winner will get €15,000, the runner up, €10,000. The 3rd and 4th place teams will get €5,000 each.
The schedule for the first day of the Valorant tournament looks like this:
Tuesday, April 6
Acend vs. Ninjas in Pyjamas : 11 am EDT
Guild Esports vs. Alliance : 2:20 pm EDT
Wednesday, April 7:
Team Heretics vs. Opportunists : 11 am EDT
