Ludwig x Tarik Valorant Invitational 2: Schedule, Teams and More

Here is all you need to know about the upcoming Valorant event- Ludwig X Tarik Invitational 2, including teams, schedule, prize pool and how to watch

One of last year's most popular off-season events is making its much-awaited return in 2024. The Ludwig x Tarik Invitational 2 is scheduled to kick off on January 13th, 2024, at the OFFBRAND Studio in Los Angeles, USA.

Hosted by the two biggest stars in the streaming scene- Tarik ‘tarik” Celik and Ludwig Ahgren, the event is one of the biggest attractions for Valorant fans during the off-season. Last year, we saw The Guard winning the Ludwig X Tarik Invitational, igniting a remarkable journey that pinnacled in their triumph at the 2023 America's Ascension.

This year, the lineup again features some of North America's most exciting and fan-favourite teams, setting the stage for an electrifying event. Keep up with us to get all the information you need to fully enjoy the upcoming showdown.
