Champions Weekend: Map Reveal, Fan Fest, and Grand Finals

A world champion will be crowned at the Kia Forum when VALORANT stars converge this weekend in Los Angeles.

The brightest stars in VALORANT will converge this weekend in Los Angeles, with a world champion to be crowned Saturday night from the legendary Kia Forum.

After a year of highlight reel aces and last-second clutches, the field of Champions Los Angeles has whittled from 16 world-class squads to the final four.


The action begins on Thursday, Aug. 24, with the Upper-Bracket Final & Lower-Bracket Semifinal (both best-of-three). Friday, Aug. 25, will see our first best-of-five of the tournament in the Lower-Bracket Final. And on Saturday, Aug. 26, the match that will change careers and shift legacies forever — the VALORANT Champions 2023 Grand Final.

Opening Ceremony


Before the climactic ending on Saturday, make sure to tune into the Champions Gold Carpet pre-show for the debut of the next VALORANT map. We’ll also bring together some of the largest names in VALORANT, music, and gaming. This marquee event will prepare you for the Champions Grand Final like no other.

Proceeding the Gold Carpet, be ready for the Grand Finals Opening Ceremony as Grabbitz, bbno$, and more take the spotlight to kick off the biggest match of the year in all of VALORANT.



Something big is on the horizon. Tune into the VALORANT Champions Los Angeles pre-show on August 25 and 26, starting around 8:00pm CEST for a reveal of what’s to come at the dawn of Episode 7 Act 2.

Fan Fest


The final stop of the tour will be at VALORANT Champions Fan Fest during all three days of finals at the Forum. A ticket for Finals matches is required for entry, and ticket holders should be sure to get to the venue early to catch all the pre-show action.

The space outside of the KIA Forum will be transformed into a massive fandom area, complete with food, games, and some familiar faces. Come and meet your favorite teams, check out some amazing art, pose with cosplayers, and more as we set the stage for the incredible action of the VCT Champions Finals.
