Valorant Challengers League: South Asia is one of the most popular leagues in the South Asian region, with 10 of the most skilled competitors from the region competing for advancing further in the competition.

Teams will compete against one another on LAN in New Delhi, India, for two months in an effort to qualify for South Asia’s VCT Ascension in Split 1 and earn a chunk of the $40,000 reward.

VCL South Asia 2023 Format

The VCL South Asia will have a regular season where all 10 teams will participate in the League Stage. This is just like the other Valorant Challengers Leagues. The participating teams will be divided into two sets of five at first. The teams in each division will compete in a single-round-robin tournament until they have all faced off against each other.

The League Stage’s best three teams from each group will then advance to the playoffs. The playoffs will have a double-elimination format. The four remaining teams advance to the Upper Bracket quarterfinals, while the group champions from the League Stage advance straight to the upper bracket semifinals.

Apart from the Grand Finals, which will be played as a best-of-five series, all games in the Valorant Challengers League: South Asia will be played as best-of-three series.

Seven of the ten teams participating in the South Asian Valorant Challengers League were chosen because of their standing as Valorant organisations. The final three teams entered the competition after finishing in the top three places in the Open Qualifiers.
