Valorant Champions - Format
As we mentioned, the format involves an initial group stage with four teams split into the same amount of pools. From there, they'll face off in a double-elimination bracket to determine which teams advance to the final single-elimination bracket.
The two teams that advance from each group will be placed into separate sides of the bracket, however, the matchups will be drawn randomly from this point onwards.
All matches will be best-of-three, except the grand finals, which will be a best-of-five affair.

Riot Games has yet to announce any co-streamers as it's often been the case with previous events, but still, there's no shortage of ways you can tune in.
