The all-women's Valorant tournament will see both the world’s top female pros and top-level amateurs competing for $10k in cash and prizes.
The tournament format consists of a four-week open qualifier series. Using a cumulative ranking system, the top four seeds at the end of the qualifiers will go on to compete in the Super Girl Gamer Valorant Championship on June 19. The event will feature an on-air talent pool that consists of almost entirely women, including the legendary Stephanie “missharvey” Harvey.
Super Girl Gamer is currently the only female-driven multi-title tournament series based in the USA. Making it a fantastic opportunity for young girls and women gamers keen to dip their feet into the esports space.
The tournament series, which runs until November 21, also features a Summer, Fall and Winter Season. As well as a total of $100k in cash & prizes up for grabs over the series. In future Seasons we can expect to see the best of the best from both the pro and amateur level competing in additional titles. Including League of Legends, Hearthstone, Fortnite and CS:GO.
Bright Future, Strong History
Now in it’s fifth year running, the tournament series is branching out to create more opportunities and include more voices. Expanding into a multi-title seasonal tournament series running over 7 months.
“This is a really important series for women, and I am so happy to be a part of it”. Said Emmalee “EMUHLEET” Garrido, Captain of the women’s CS:GO and Valorant teams for Dignitas. Calling it a “great step” and pointing out how critical events like this are in creating opportunities for women within the esports space. Also adding “it’s been gratifying to watch the progress Super Girl has made over the past five years.”
Event organisers, ASA Entertainment, say they’re going all out with the production values. Bringing in skilled tournament staff and a production crew on top of their on-air talent and company sponsors. The move is also a bid to offer an example to the rest of the industry; showing them just how succesful all-female tournaments can be run.
“We are exceptionally grateful to have such a committed group of brand partners who are zealous about creating more diversity and inclusion in gaming”. Said Rick Bratman, CEO of ASA Entertainment and producer of the Super Girl Series.
And Super Girl Gamer has plenty of experience with putting together exciting, large-scale tournaments. It’s basically a sister to the long-running Super Girl Pro; which has been showcasing the prowess of some of the world’s top female action sports athletes for 15 years now.
