VALORANT fans need no longer wait, as the esport has officially welcomed the 10 teams that will participate in the first year of VCT China.
The new-look VALORANT Champions Tour of 2023 began with three leagues of partnered teams. Entering 2024, that expands to four leagues as China enters the mix. And after months of speculation and rumors, we now know all 10 of the VCT China teams.
There are organizations you'd certainly expect after proving their dedication to VALORANT thus far, and others who Riot Games feel are a safe bet to entertain and compete. When the 2024 season begins, these 10 teams have as great a chance as any.
Introducing the organizations that will field VCT China teams starting in 2024
All the way back at VCT LOCK//IN, it was announced that China would eventually become the fourth VALORANT international league. As the year progressed, it made more and more sense with the likes of Bilibili Gaming, EDward Gaming, and FunPlus Phoenix having outstanding global performances.
Joining them is a slate of seven other teams that will have a lot of work to do if they want to dethrone those who have made themselves a household name in Chinese VALORANT thus far. So, without further ado, here are all 10 VCT China teams:
- All Gamers
- Bilibili Gaming
- EDward Gaming
- FunPlus Phoenix
- JD Gaming
- Nova Esports
- Trace Esports
- Titan Esports Club
- Wolves Esports
Each international league's season will kick off in February. At that time, VCT China and the listed teams will officially be a part of the fastest rising esport in the world. They'll have their own opening tournament and secure their share of slots at international LAN events such as Masters and Champions.
VALORANT hadn't officially launched in China until July 2023, but several teams played on servers from other regions to practice. The other regions shouldn't think for one second that they are a step ahead because of the delayed release.
