LPL reveal $30,000 Valorant Oceania Tour for 2021

The Valorant Oceania Tour gives two local teams a chance to qualify for Champions in December.

Oceanic Valorant is on for 2021, with LetsPlay.Live (LPL) announcing the Valorant Oceania Tour with $30,000 in prizing across three stages, and two chances for local teams to qualify for the world-wide Champions event in December.

Despite being snubbed from the global Valorant Champions Tour, Oceania still has a path to prove themselves in Riot’s FPS title in 2021.

NZ-based tournament organizer LPL has announced on January 29 that it will be running the Valorant Oceania Tour across 2021, with $30,000 in prize money on the line across the year.

It comes after Snowball Esports reported on January 21 that LPL had won the bid for the hosting rights of Oceanic Valorant events in 2021.

The Tour will be split into three stages. Teams earn points based on their performances in each stage, starting from the Open Qualifiers, into the Closed Qualifier, right down to the Grand Final. The approximate date for each stage is:

  • Stage 1: February 10 – March 21
  • Stage 2: April – June
  • Stage 3: June – August

The top 8 teams at the end of Stage 3 will be invited to the Oceania Championship in September. This final regional tournament is the official pathway to Valorant Champions in December, with the top 2 squads qualifying for the NA Last Chance Qualifier.

One spot is on the line in the NA / OCE event, penned for October, to make it to Worlds.


Sign-ups for Stage 1 of the Valorant Oceania Tour are open on the LPL website.
