VCT Americas: Format

All international leagues in the Valorant Champions Tour, including VCT China and VCT Americas, follow the same format for Stage 1 and 2. Eleven teams are competing, with ten established and franchised teams and one new team joining from Ascension 2023. 

Stages 1 and 2 are separated by international events featuring only the best Valorant teams from each league. These are called Masters (with two events in between each seasonal split) and Champions, which round out the whole competitive season. VCT Americas team Sentinels won VCT Masters Madrid in March while Masters Shanghai will be held in mid-May. 

Group Stage

The 11 teams are split into two groups: Alpha with five teams and Omega with six. They engage in cross-group matches until each team has faced all opponents from the opposing group. Following this, inter-group matches take place. Matches are best-of-three, and the top six teams proceed to the Playoffs.


During the Playoffs, a hybrid-elimination format is adopted, comprising six teams. The initial Knockout Round adheres to a single-elimination structure. At the same time, the Upper Bracket Semifinals and subsequent stages implement a double-elimination system.

All matches, excluding the Lower Bracket Final and Grand Final, are best-of-three. The Grand Final and Lower Bracket Final are both best-of-five. No prize money is awarded in any VCT international leagues, but top teams vie for crucial VCT points.

VCT Americas gets four slots at VCT Champions 2024 in Seoul, three based on their Stage 2 performance and one team with the most VCT Americas circuit points from the entire year.

Valorant Betting Markets

Rivalry uses decimal odds to indicate the likelihood of specific outcomes, such as a team winning a match or map. For instance, if Sentinels are listed at odds of 1.5x, you could win 1.5 times your original bet if they emerge victorious! If you're still unsure about how to interpret various esports odds, you can check out this Rivalry Academy article.

For all our available Valorant betting markets, we continue to offer the best Valorant odds in the business, whether it's Masters, Champions, or the regular season for each international league. 

  • Match Winner: Valorant Champions Tour matches during the regular season are usually played as best-of-three series (Bo3) or best-of-five (Bo5). This means that the esports games usually span across several maps, i.e., Map 1, Map 2, Map 3, etc. As such, you can pick the winner of each individual map so you could have Senintels down to win Maps 1 and 3, with LOUD winning the 2nd Map. 
  • Map Winner: Exactly what it sounds like! You can bet on the winning team of an overall matchup. The lower the odds, the more likely that team is to win, whereas higher odds mean they're more of an underdog and unlikely to win in the 1v1. 
  • Handicaps: Handicap bets even out the playing field between the underdogs and the more-favored team. For example, if you bet on LOUD with -1.5 maps, they'll have to win the series 2-0 for your bet to win. If you choose an underdog like MIBR, they'll only need to win one map. 
  • Totals: Totals in Valorant betting refers to how many rounds it takes to win a match. Those who play Valorant know how grueling it is, as the first team to reach 13 won rounds wins the game.
