Being hailed as one of the esports hubs globally, South Korea has been the chosen destination for numerous significant esports tournaments across diverse gaming titles. Among these, the 2023 World Championships of League of Legends, another Riot favorite, stands out. The city’s incredible infrastructure makes it ideal for hosting large-scale international Esports events.

For the first time since its inception in 2021, the prestigious Champions event of VALORANT will grace the Asia Pacific shores. Los Angeles was the venue for VALORANT Champions in the previous year, with Berlin taking the helm in 2022. Istanbul, Turkey, was the host of the inaugural event in 2021.

Seoul has a rich history of hosting offline VALORANT events. For the past year, the city has been the heart of the VCT Pacific league, where Asia-Pacific's rising stars battle for glory. With the number of teams rising to 11 this year from the original ten in 2023, the city's allure continues to grow, drawing in even more players.

The VCT Champions Seoul will have 16 teams from the four International Leagues. Each league will send four teams. Three teams will qualify through the top three finishes in the Stage 2 Playoffs, and the fourth team will earn a spot based on their accumulated Championship Points during the season.
