Valorant Red Bull Home Ground: Schedule, format, teams, how to watch, more

Home Ground by Red Bull will be the last major European tournament before the start of Valorant Champions Tour.
Red Bull have announced a Valorant tournament with a twist featuring the best teams in Europe and a £24,000 prize pool.

Home Ground will have a format unlike that seen at any previous Valorant tournament. Teams will pick a "home ground" map before each best-of-five. The first two maps played will be the team's chosen home ground. If one team wins both they move on to the next round, if not they play out the Bo5.

It's an exciting twist on the tried and true and should give all maps, and matches, an added sense of urgency.
