Last year, no team made it out of the VALORANT Championship 2021 Group Stage but two came really close.

There are three teams to look out for in Brazil Challengers and we’ll see how they fare against their competitors: FURIA Esports and Team Vikings and Gamelanders Blue.

Although Gamelanders Blue came close to beating Vikings at the Brazil Masters 2021 they failed to get into the championship because they lacked the point advantage over FURIA.

According to VALORANT Esports Staff EMEA teams will crush the championship this year once again. Nevertheless VALORANT is still a relatively new game in the realm of esports, pros from other popular titles such as CSGO, Apex and siege are switching over to try their luck at this new game and hone their skills before anyone else.
