VCT Americas League 2023: Teams, Format, schedule, and more

After the spectacular VCT LOCK//IN, it’s time for teams to compete in their respective region league. The single 2023 split for all three international VALORANT regions becomes significantly more crucial, particularly in light of the implications for Masters Tokyo and Champions 2022 qualification. Valorant Esports announced regional leagues will start with the America region league, VCT Americas.

In this tournament, all 10 American franchised teams will compete to get spots in VCT Masters Tokyo and the biggest stage of all, VCT Champions 2023. Only one Americas region team managed to qualify for playoffs in VCT LOCK//IN, i.e LOUD. The pressure to perform has increased as a result of all the preparation work done throughout the offseason.

All 10 franchised teams will take part in this tournament. As for the roster goes, every team except Sentinels and Cloud 9, will feature the same team as you saw in VCT LOCK//IN. Sentinels will be looking for their 6th member after SicK‘s suspension. Cloud9 a few days ago parted ways with Yay and now there are reports that their IGL Vanity is parting ways with org.
