The much-anticipated VALORANT Champions Tour (VCT) 2024 event, VALORANT Masters Madrid 2024, is set to kick off on March 14th, featuring eight top teams from around the world. The tournament will take place from March 14th to 24th in Madrid, Spain, and promises to be a thrilling ride for all VALORANT fans.


The Teams

The 2024 season kicked off with regional Kickoff Tournaments in the Americas, China, EMEA, and Pacific regions. Each League sent their two strongest contenders to represent them in Madrid. Here are the qualified teams:

  • VCT Americas: LOUD, Sentinels
  • VCT Pacific: Paper Rex, Gen.G
  • VCT EMEA: Team Heretics, Karmine Corp
  • VCT CN: FunPlus Phoenix, EDward Gaming

Tournament Format

Masters Madrid features a unique two-stage format: the Swiss Stage and the Bracket Stage.

Swiss Stage (March 14th – 18th)

Teams are randomly drawn into four opening matches based on their Kickoff results. Winners face winners, while losers face losers, with no teams from the same region battling each other. This stage uses a Best-of-Three series format. Teams need two wins before accumulating two losses across a maximum of three rounds to advance.

Bracket Stage (March 21st – 24th)

The four teams emerging from the Swiss Stage enter a double-elimination bracket. A random draw determines their first opponents. Winners progress through the upper bracket, while losers drop to the lower bracket. A best-of-five series awaits in both the Lower Bracket Finals and the Grand Finals to determine the champion.
