Qualifiers will take place from 10th, 17th and 24th April in Kenya with a National final on 15th May. All National Champions will head to the prestigious World Final, a once in a lifetime opportunity at esports stardom where they will compete against the world’s finest student VALORANT competitors, and on top of that will win a cutting-edge gaming hub for their university. The team that emerges victorious at the World Final will secure €20,000. In addition, Riot Games, the creators of VALORANT are offering the Red Bull Campus Clutch World Final Winners an exclusive chance to see the biggest stars in VALORANT compete at the upcoming VALORANT Masters event, an official tournament within the 2021 Champions Tour.
