VCT APAC Challengers Stage 1: Know Format and Participating Teams

Following the completion of eight sub-regional VALORANT Champions Tour events across Asia-Pacific yesterday, the 20 teams for VCT APAC Stage 1 Challengers were determined. A lengthy qualifying process involving hundreds of teams from across the Asia-Pacific region determined the participating teams.

South Asia and Oceania will now compete in the APAC circuit alongside Southeast Asia markets, bringing the total number of participating regions to eight. As a result of their inclusion, players from South Asia and Oceania will now be subject to the APAC residency rule and will no longer be considered imports. Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, South Asia, Oceania, Singapore/Malaysia, and Taiwan/Hong Kong are among the total competitive markets.
