FaZe Clan have announced their own Valorant tournament with the FaZe Clan Valorant Invitational. The event will take place between August 6 and August 9.
The newly announced event will be part of the official Valorant Ignition Series. It’ll take place between August 6 and August 9 and a total of 16 teams will be competing over the $50,000 prize pool. Out of the 16 teams, twelve will receive direct invitations (so far it’s only FaZe). The remaining four will be determined by open qualifiers.
If you want to give it a shot you’ll have the chance, as the event is hosted by Nerd Street Gamers which will also produce the event behind the scenes. Previously NSG worked together with T1 to bring fans the T1 x Nerd Street Gamers VALORANT Showdown.
According to the Nerd Street Gamers official website, the whole event will be held on the Battlefy platform. The entry is free of charge and anyone can join. The open qualifiers are scheduled for August 1 and August 2, so if you want to take part, better make haste.
Since the FaZe Clan Valorant Invitational will be part of the official Ignition Series, you’ll be able to find multiple streams. One on the Valorant Twitch channel, one on FaZe Clan’s Twitch channel and the third one on Nerd Street Gamers.
FaZe Clan’s Chief Revenue Officer, Jeff Pabst commented:
We are so excited to team up with our friends at Riot and our amazing partners at Nissan and Verizon to put on this tournament. Fans can expect a true FaZe Clan live experience chock-full of entertainment unlike any tournament the gaming community is used to seeing.
Riot’s Head of North American Esports Partnerships, Matt Archambault added:
FaZe is a name that's immediately recognizable across esports, and we're thrilled to support their debut Valorant event. With the largest prize pool to date in the Ignition Series, and hand-picked competitors, we're confident the FaZe Clan Valorant Invitational will not only live up to the hype, but will be yet another huge step forward for Valorant competition in North America.
More information about the event like the list of invited teams will no doubt appear over the next week. We’ll keep you updated on the matter.
