Chiefs announce L’Oréal Men Expert Valorant Invitational with $10k on the line

Eight of Oceania’s best teams will battle it out for $10,000 in the Chiefs’ Men Expert Valorant Invitational.

Storied Australian esports org Chiefs Esports Club is making their entrance into Valorant ⁠— but it’s not with a new team. Instead, they’ll be hosting the Men Expert Valorant Invitational, with $10,000 on the line for eight of Oceania’s best Valorant teams.

Need some more domestic Valorant action before First Strike? The Chiefs are bringing in the big guns, putting together the Men Expert Valorant Invitational with $10,000 on offer for the region’s best teams.

“We’ve wanted to run a Valorant event for months now and are excited to finally unveil our efforts,” said Nick Bobir, CEO of The Chiefs. 

“We decided this was a great way to support a new esports title and in particular one that we hope to soon be involved in more directly. We’ll be watching very closely for a team that we may want to recruit going into 2021.”

Eight of Oceania’s best will be invited for the three-day competition, which kicks off on Friday November 6. They’ll be divided into two groups of four for the Friday, before the top four advance to the finals on Saturday and Sunday.

The playoffs bracket is set to be double-elimination, giving teams an extra chance to climb back up to the top. 

Cash prizes will be on offer for the top three teams, with first place pocketing $6,000 as well as five Intel Gaming PCs. $3,000 will go to second place, while third will take home $1,000.

Go Next Media is proud to be the production partner of the L’Oréal Men Expert Valorant Invitational. There’ll also be community casters for games not on the main stream.

Teams and additional information will be announced at a later date.
