The Red Bull Campus Clutch World Final will soon be upon us, and for teams that have yet to seize a spot at the epic event coming up in São Paulo, Brazil, there’s one more chance: the Red Bull Campus Clutch Last Chance Qualifiers. Giving teams who narrowly missed out the first time around a second opportunity to qualify for the LAN Final in Brazil this December as a wildcard, the Last Chance Qualifiers will kick off across four regions, beginning with Asia-Pacific and European qualifiers on November 5th, 2022.
Over 25,000 students across the globe have already participated in Red Bull Campus Clutch this year, and these qualifiers are the last opportunity for prospective teams to qualify for the World Finals in December.
Open to all college and university students, Red Bull Campus Clutch is a global student VALORANT tournament. Players team up, represent their campus, and put their skills on display, with the chance to play on the world stage. All qualifying teams will be invited to the World Final, where the action will be streamed live across the globe and a grand prize of €20,000 awaits the winning team.
Red Bull Campus Clutch is a global 5v5 VALORANT tournament, open to university students from over 50 countries.
Last Chance Qualifiers will be held in four regions for teams to win a wildcard ticket to the World Final.
Each of the four regions will host two qualifiers, and each of those qualifiers will have space for 128 or more teams. The victors of those two qualifiers will go head-to-head in a Grand Final to determine the winner of the region’s wildcard. This means that potentially over 1,000 teams worldwide can launch their last-ditch campaign, but just four of them – one from each region – will join the World Final lineup as wildcards.
The dates are follows:
Asia-Pacific Preliminary rounds: November 5th – 12th. Final: November 13th
European Preliminary rounds: November 5th – 12th. Final: November 13th
North American Preliminary rounds: November 25th – 26th. Final: November 27th
Latin American Preliminary rounds: November 19th – 26th. Final: November 27th
