Applications for the Women In Games incubator are now open

By winning the Game Changers Championship, the G2 Gozen players became the first Valorant World Champions. If you too would like to become the next Mary or the next zAAz, Women In Games is there to support you. Their incubator can offer you a chance to become professional.


Until last year, Valorant professional players could compete within their own region, EMEA, Pacific or Americas, in Game Changers tournaments. However, they did not have the opportunity to compete against other teams from around the world, as was already the case with the players. Nevertheless, the women's competitive scene took a new turn this year. Announced last June, the first Game Changers Championship has come to solve this problem by proposing a first international meeting.

A true summit competition, it offered the eight best teams in the world a unique opportunity to showcase their skills. At only 16 years old, Mary from G2 Gozen, was the youngest player in the tournament and yet received the MVP award, as well as the trophy.

Although there are indeed women's teams around the world, many players do not dare to take the plunge, despite their very good level. This is where Women In Games, a professional association that works for gender equality in video games and esports. Every year, thanks to its incubator, it provides support for several months to players who wish to become professional. Applications for the new season are already open.

It will be necessary to respond to some criteria for eligibility to the programme. This includes living in Europe, being at least 16 years old, being at least Diamond 2, speaking English and being respectful. If you are a competitor at heart and would like to try your luck and meet these conditions, go to the official website of the association.
