G2 Esports is proud to present the first tournament in Riot Games’ Ignition Series!
With the announcement of Riot Games’ Ignition Series, G2 is proud to host the first ever official Riot Games VALORANT tournament in partnership with Red Bull! Starting on the 19th of June and spanning across 3 days, each of our 8 team captains will fight for glory and a share of the 15,000 Euro prize!
However, there is a twist. The captains will only find out who will be on their team the day before the tournament starts. Rewarding adaptability, communication, and teamwork, this tournament will not only test a player’s skill, but also how well they can synergise with their mystery teammates.
Carlos Rodriguez, CEO of G2 Esports had this to say about the tournament,
“We are ready to open the VALORANT Ignition Series and continue the success of the G2 EU Brawls in an all-out entertainment-filled invitational. “Our partnership with Riot has helped make the European League of Legends community the force it is today and contributed to the success of the LEC, and I have no doubt that we will do the same for VALORANT.
“VALORANT is a fantastic game and Riot has accomplished what many have tried by finding the sweet spot between casual fun and a hardcore competitive experience. Through this Series the world will see exactly what the VALORANT hype is all about."
Wondering where you can catch all of the action? Select games will be cast on the G2 Esports Twitch channel and every player will stream their POV. As an added bonus for our Spanish fans, Ibai will be streaming the Final from his Twitch channel!
All that is left to say for now, is keep an eye on our socials for announcements on players, casters and the bracket!
