VCT 2024 Masters Shanghai
After the official release of Valorant in China, it was expected that an event in the semi-near future would be hosted there. Masters Shanghai will take place "in late spring" and will feature the best teams from the three international leagues together with the top teams from the qualifiers.
The Chinese Valorant community is growing rapidly fast, and with this event, they mark an important milestone for their competitive scene. Valorant China was released on July 12th, and already they hosted their first LAN tournament which was the qualifier for Champions 2023.
Masters Shanghai will be the second international event of the 2024 VCT, and will come after the first one which will initially kick off the Valorant competitive season. This will be the 6th VCT Masters in Valorant and will come in less than a year since VCT Masters Tokyo took place.
