India’s first Valorant LAN event AMD Skyesports Souvenir – Mumbai 2022 unveiled

Skyesports has reached yet another landmark by hosting the India’s and presumably South Asia’s first LAN Valorant event with four invited teams flying down to Mumbai to compete for $10,000 and bragging rights.

Valorant has climbed in popularity in India to become its first ever sustainable PC esports title. The fanbase around this game is increasing and Skyesports is one of the promoters that is building the competitive ecosystem in India.

Skyesports is known to host big events for BGMI and other titles, including Valorant and this time the organizers have set up a Valorant LAN event. Four teams namely Team Velocity, Global Esports, Enigma Gaming and Team Snakes from Pakistan are attending this event. The invites are distributed on the basis of their past performance in Skyesports’ tournaments.

The Skyesports Souvenir – Mumbai 2022 is presented by AMD. Logitech G is the gaming partner for the event while Croma is the gaming rig partner. Rooter is the broadcasting partner.

The most exciting part of this tournament is that it will have a limited live audience and the invited teams will give away super fan tickets via their social media handles.

Talking about this event, Shiva Nandy, the CEO and Founder of Skyesports said the following:

“After a gap of more than two years, we are finally marking a return to LAN events with VALORANT’s first-ever offline competition in India. The first edition of the AMD Skyesports Souvenir in Mumbai is set to be a spectacle like you’ve never seen before. This is just the beginning, though. We have a lot in store throughout the year with more LAN events across different games including some first-party tournaments like the VCT Stage 2 Challengers South Asia, which is being hosted by Skyesports. I am excited to kick off a new journey with the Skyesports Souvenir in Mumbai and can’t wait to continue the legacy in a city near you.

Sukamal Pegu, the man representing Riot Games in South Asia and India had following to say:

“It has been very heartening to see the support from the South Asian community towards VALORANT esports over the past two years. It was time to treat them with an offline event as a LAN tournament provides a different level of competition and intensity. I am thrilled to see Skyesports make this a reality with the AMD Skyesports Souvenir in Mumbai.

The invited teams will compete in a single round-robin format to play a BO3 match and top two teams will face off in grand finals in a grand best-of-five match. A streamer showdown match is also arranged at this event.

This is certainly a huge step for the development of Valorant esports in India as more LAN tournaments seem to be on the way and Skyesports is leading the rally.
