The top ten Valorant teams from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, Philippines, South Korea, Thailand and the South Asia Pacific region will face off for the inaugural season of VCT Pacific.
Here's everything fans need to know about the VCT Pacific League 2023.
VCT Pacific 2023 will kick off with a bang with an eight-week league play on March 25 with the regular season. All ten competing teams will battle in a single round-robin stage. Every match will be played as a Bo3 series.
