#TechPH - HyperX and Riot Games Extend Global Partnership for VALORANT Champions Tour

Riot Games and HyperX, a brand-leader in gaming and esports and part of HP Inc., announced an extension of their partnership for the VALORANT Champions Tour over a number of years (VCT). As a VCT founding partner since 2021, HyperX continues to serve as the official supplier of gaming keyboards, mice, and mouse pads for one of the fastest-expanding esports in the globe.

“HyperX is excited to continue our Founding Partner role with the VALORANT gaming franchise in bringing better gaming experiences, together,”
said HyperX. “Gaming is something we experience at home, with friends, and during special gaming events like VALORANT tournaments, and HyperX is proud to be part of this enthusiastic community.”

As part of the partnership, Riot will continue to source HyperX award-winning gaming products for all VCT global events including: 

  • The inaugural VCT LOCK//IN tournament, which just concluded with FNATIC taking the title and securing an extra slot for the VCT EMEA region at Champions 2023 
  • VCT Masters, coming in June to Tokyo, Japan, home to one of the sport’s most passionate and fastest-growing communities 
  • VCT Champions, the culminating event of the season where the first world champion of the new VCT will be crowned
  • VALORANT Game Changers Championship, the pinnacle event for Riot’s groundbreaking initiative celebrating the top women's pro teams around the world

VCT enters a new age in 2023 as the sport introduces a new league model and competitive ecosystem made up of 20+ Challenger leagues with hundreds of teams all over the world, along with three international leagues: VCT Americas, VCT EMEA, and VCT Pacific, each of which houses 30 teams.

“As a founding partner of the VCT, HyperX has been a valuable asset to the growth of our sport from the beginning, and we’re thrilled to extend our relationship as VCT embarks on its third season under a new global league structure,” said Leo Faria, Global Head of VALORANT Esports at Riot Games. “We at Riot are deeply invested in building long-term sustainability across our global esports, and we’re happy to have HyperX and their award-winning products along for the ride.” 

The 2022 VCT Champions Grand Final attracted a record-breaking 1.5 million peak viewers and an average minute viewership of 1.25 million (+34% growth over the previous year), making it one of the fastest growing video games in the world since its 2020 premiere.
