2023 VALORANT Champions Tour LOCK//IN – Complete Schedule

Riot Games has officially announced the format for the VALORANT Champions Tour LOCK//IN event in São Paulo. This three-week-long competition marks the beginning of the 2023 VCT season and the partnership era.

The tournament will showcase a total of 32 teams, including all 30 partnered teams from the Americas, EMEA, and Pacific international leagues, along with two invited teams representing China. These teams will be randomly drawn into a 32-team single-elimination bracket, with the aim of maximizing inter-regional matches in the second round. Each side of the bracket will consist of five teams from the Americas, five from EMEA, five from the Pacific, and one from China.

The tournament will kick off with the “Alpha” group matches from Feb. 13 to 19, where only two teams will remain. The “Omega” group matches will then take place from Feb. 22 to 27. All matches during these periods will be best-of-three. The semifinals and the grand final, scheduled for March 2 to 4, will be best-of-five.
