The first tournament of the Valorant Open Tour France ended last week with the victory of Megastitut ! But the competition is far from over and we are now tackling the VALOTF Summer Tournament. Discover the key dates of this tournament which promises to be even more exciting than the previous one!

This tournament is the second of three qualifying tournaments on the French-speaking circuit and is part of the Lyon e-Sport 2021. It will run from 19th June to 4th July 2021 and will award the best teams with 3 qualifying places for the final tournament at the end of the year.

To register, go to the official website of the competition from this Saturday 5th June at 7pm!

Like the Spring Tournament, the Summer Tournament has 128 places. If there are more than 128 teams registered, the 128 teams with the highest average MMR will be selected. The composition of the tournament bracket will also be based on the MMR.

The tournament took place in 3 phases:

  • The first phase will be the Swiss rounds and will be played on Saturday 19th June. There will be 7 BO1 matches per team and the best 32 teams will qualify for the rest of the competition.
  • The second phase will take place from 26th to 27th June and will allow to advance in the bracket up to and including the quarter finals. All matches will be played in BO3.
  • The third and final phase will take place during the Lyon e-Sport, on 3rd and 4th July ! The semi-finals and finals will be played in BO5.

All these phases will be streamed on Mandatory's Twitch channel and the third one will be cast on stage during the Lyon e-Sport!
