The esports company Epulze has entered a partnership with Riot Games Southeast Asia, adding the Valorant Royal Cup to the VALORANT Ignition Series.
With a prize pool of US$25,000, the main event will take place from 21 to 27 September 2020 with open qualifiers running from 19 to 20 September 2020.
The Valorant Royal Cup will have 16 participating teams, 12 being direct Invites and 4 being top teams from the open qualifiers.
