The third Edition Red Bull Home Ground will feature some of the best professional Valorant teams facing a battle against one another from December 9 to December 11. This year’s competition will take place at Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse, which will change from a music venue to an esports centre as spectators pour in to see some top-tier esports action.
This special event includes a “Home and Away” style that emphasises map knowledge and strategic variety by letting teams choose which maps they compete on. For the first two rounds, each side chooses a map, and if one team wins both, the match is won. In the case of a tie, the standard best-of-five format will be used to decide the winner.
Qualified and invited teams
At the Red Bull Home Ground 3, eight elite international rosters will compete for Valorant’s worldwide audience’s attention. Six of the eight teams have been invited, as was already reported. The Turkish Qualifiers and EMEA Closed Qualifiers winners will accompany them.
- Team Liquid
- Team Vitality
- FOKUS Clan
- FUT Esports (Turkish Qualifier)
- BIG (EMEA Qualifier)
Three invited spots are yet to be announced by officials.
