Valorant Challengers League
VCT 2023 NA Challengers League: Know Expected Teams, Schedule, and where to Watch – The Valorant Champions Tour 2023 is just around the corner, and Riot Games announced a new concept for the competition earlier this year. The VCT was also given a partnership system by the organizers. The VCT NA Challengers League is set to be an intriguing one because it features great teams and only one two-year promotion position in the VCT Americas league is up for grabs.

The NA Challengers teams will battle starting in January qualifications for a chance to compete at and win the Ascension tournament later in 2023, which will give them that coveted but transient VCT Americas berth. In the VCT Americas league, just five NA organizations obtained partnerships, and all the roster changes left a substantial pool of NA talent available for potential Challengers teams to choose from. Teams are already forming squads with some amazing organizational structures, and more are likely to do so before the qualifications start.
Participating Teams in VCT 2023 NA Challengers League
The Challengers League, which will be run by Knights Arena, will feature twelve North American teams. Two teams will advance to the Americas Ascension tournament, where they will be joined by Brazilian and LATAM teams, following a lengthy and difficult season that included two splits, a mid-season event, and the playoffs.
