The Strike Arabia Championship is the first step for all teams in the MENA region along our esports roadmap for the year 2021. Together with the Strike Arabia League, it will pave the way for eight teams to advance to the Grand Finals, where one regional champion will qualify to the EMEA Last Chance Qualifers, and battle for their shot at the first global VALORANT championship title.
The Strike Arabia Championship will conducted in two seasons - the first being in March and April, and the second in June and July - and will cover our three sub-regions: GCC & Iraq, Levant & Egypt, and North Africa. Each season, the Championship will be divided into two splits, each following the league system. Only one team will emerge victorious from each sub-region, and will automatically advance to the Strike Arabia Grand Finals in September, for a total of six teams from the Strike Arabia Championship, and two more teams from the Strike Arabia League.
It should be noted that victors may not re-enter the Championship or the Strike Arabia League, but other teams are welcome to try their best again in either tournament. The Strike Arabia Grand Finals will be organized as an offline LAN event that promises to be epic, all while adhering to the necessary safety and social distancing guidelines.
The three sub-regional championships will run concurrently in all 3 regions, and matches will be featured on our Twitch channel, Facebook page and YouTube channel each season between 16:00 and 19:00 (GMT), and will be punctuated by in-game commentary and post-game analysis from the host and stream guests.
