The Valorant esports strategy is getting off to a quick start. ESPN is an Esports Valorant Invitational tournament on between April 20th and April 22nd, starting at 3:30PM Eastern each day. This isn’t part of a larger circuit, but the eight-team tourney will include plenty of pro-level players that include Rainbow Six: Siege champion Troy “Canadian” Jaroslawski, CS:GO champ Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham and Fortnite World Cup runner-up Harrison “Psalm” Chang.

The competition isn’t airing on TV despite the dearth of live sports, but it’s still a significant moment. Valorant only just entered closed beta testing earlier in April — while it’s easier to score an invitation than it was at first, the game isn’t widely available yet. ESPN’s involvement suggests that Valorant might get traction in a sometimes finicky新皇冠体育app esports scene.
