Red Bull announced that it’s now accepting sign-ups for Campus Clutch in the U.S. This is the company’s largest Valorant tournament aimed at students, and challenges them to team up and fight not only for their university but even for their country on the world stage.

There’s no question that the stakes are indeed high, especially for those who can win the U.S. National Finals. That’s because whoever wins gets the chance to join the World Finals.

The Tournament

According to Red Bull, the advantage of Campus Clutch is that it offers different student teams a level playing field while also giving them a start on what could be a professional career in esports. Overall, Valorant fans can expect teams coming from at least 50 countries around the world for this tournament.

The tournament is open to students who are at least 18 years old and enrolled in a college or university. However, the five members of a team must come from the same university. If you think you have what it takes and have four friends with the same thirst, then go ahead and sign up here.

Road to the World Finals

For the US, qualifiers are scheduled across the country from March 5 to April 18 and take place in different colleges and universities. Teams that make it through the university qualifiers move forward to the Regional Semi-Finals. For teams whose schools don’t have any qualifiers, they can participate in National Wild Card Qualifiers instead, where four slots are open.

Teams that win the Regional Semi-Finals, as well as the Wild Card Qualifiers, advance to the National Finals. The winning team here becomes the best student Valorant team in the US and takes part in the World Final.

In a statement, Riot Games Director of Esports Chris Greeley said that they are happy to have the support of Red Bull, particularly in the collegiate scene. He added that they are looking forward to who gets to be Team USA in the World Finals.

So who do you think is going to the World Finals?
