Red Bull Home Ground, one of the biggest third-party Valorant tournaments, has announced the first three invited pro teams that will be competing in its third edition later this year. Tickets for the event in Manchester, UK have also now gone on sale.
Of the eight teams set to take part in Red Bull Home Ground 2022, we already knew that BIG and FUT Esports would be in attendance as the two qualified teams from the EMEA and Turkey regions, respectively. However, Red Bull has now revealed three invited EMEA Valorant teams that will be joining the lineup: Team Vitality, FOKUS, and defending Red Bull Home Ground champions, Team Liquid.
With Red Bull hyping up this year’s event as an EMEA vs NA showdown, the remaining three invited teams will most likely be North American teams, however these are to be confirmed at a later date.
As well as the reveal of the teams, most of the hosting and casting talent has been confirmed as well. VCT staples such as Yinsu Collins, Mitch ‘Mitchman’ McBride, Tom ‘Tombizz’ Bissmire, and Ryan ‘RyanCentral’ Horton will all feature on the broadcast, as well as Beatriz ‘kaquka’ Alonso and Adam ‘Dinko’ Hawthorne.
There will also be an appearance from arguably the world’s top Valorant Game Changers roster, G2 Gozen, during the three-day tournament.
Tickets for Red Bull Home Ground 2022 have just gone on sale, so if you fancy a trip to Manchester to watch some top-tier Valorant in a unique format, snap some up and clear your diary for December 9-11.
