According to various sources who spoke with TalkEsport, South-Asian Organization Global Esports secured their Valorant franchising slot earlier today for the Asia Pacific League.
The structure of the Valorant season 2023 has already been disclosed to the public. Riot Games will shake things up by implementing a franchising structure into the professional circuit of the game, which will cause a commotion. As a result of this reorganization, the international arena will be broken up into three primary regions: the Americas, the EMEA, and the Asia Pacific.
Global Esports is one of the most well-known teams in Esports and is also one of the favourites to be accepted because of its prominence in the South-Asian environment.
Global Esports have notably bagged a plethora of regional tournaments, toppling some of the heavyweights across B-events. Bhavin “HellRangeR” Kotwani and his men recently made it to the VCT 2022: APAC Stage 2 Challengers only to be further denied from progressing onto the Stage 2 Masters held in Copenhagen.
As per our sources, the team underwent a media shoot where they confirmed their milestone with Riot earlier today.
Since the beginning of the year 2020, Global Esports has been actively competing in VALORANT, transitioning their team from Counter Strike: Global Offensive to Riot’s first-person shooter. As mentioned, the team has played out several regional tournaments, not to forget the Valorant Conquerors Championship 2021 where they beat Velocity Gaming 3-2 in a nail-biting final.
Previously, we had seen Riot Games reveal the roadmap for next year’s Valorant Champions Tour. In case you haven’t had the time to check it out yet, VCT 2023 will feature three regional leagues that only a select few ‘partnered teams’ will be able to compete in, with the first International Split starting in March 2023.
Teams that failed to secure partnerships with Riot Games can still participate in the upcoming Valorant Challengers Circuit 2023 to stand a chance to participate in the VCT 2024 season.
