The second iteration of the VCT Masters tour will bring 12 teams to compete for the prestigious trophy on the grounds of Copenhagen, Denmark.
Out of the 12 participating teams, the top four teams from regions LATAM, APAC, EMEA, and NA will advance directly to the playoffs. The rest of the eight teams, consisting of Optic Gaming, Guild Esports, LOUD, Funplus Phoenix, and more, will be divided into two groups. Each group's top two winning teams will then face the top four seeded teams in a double-elimination bracket format. The winning teams will then qualify for the Valorant World Championship, slated to commence next year.

Where to Watch VCT Masters Copenhagen
The entire event will be live-streamed on Riot Games' official YouTube and Twitch channels. Valorant fans can also watch the event in a host of other languages, including Korean, Spanish, and Arabic, on the developer's other channels. However, fans should note that the group and bracket elimination stages will not feature a live audience and will only be broadcast on Riot's corresponding channels. Valorant fans can book their tickets for the Semifinal stages and the Grand finals, as in the events featuring a live audience from July 22 to 24.
However, Riot Games haven't revealed the prize pool for the second VCT Masters championship yet, but we expect it to be more or the same as $600,000, the prize pool of the first championship held in Reyjkavik.
