The franchise system enters Valorant with force
Riot Games once again bets on a franchise championship, in this case it does so with Valorant. A localized venue, new teams and rules that give more exclusivity to the teams participating in this new VCT EMEA 2023 championship.
Different information indicates that the city chosen to host the Valorant franchises in EMEA It was Berlin. After days of discussion, the final decision regarding the city that would host the championship focused on two candidates: Berlin and Barcelona. The reason why the German capital was chosen is because most teams preferred it to Barcelona, mainly because many of those organizations already have their headquarters in Berlin due to the LEC.
The franchise championship will mean for all its participants not being able to have an academy in regional leagues, so the national teams that enter the EMEA franchise championship will have to leave the LVP according to the regulations of RiotGames.
