Valorant Added To ESL Premiership, Extends Intel Partnership

The competition, which sees ESL extend its partnership with Intel, will see a series of open qualifiers and a round-robin group stage lead into a one-off tournament on June 26th.

Intel's #PREMVP will highlight some of the tournament's clutch plays and allow for some team audio to be shared.

Mark Walton, EMEA Graphics and Gaming Comms Manager at Intel said “It's been exciting to see the tremendous growth of the Valorant community over the past 12 months."

"We're delighted to support its inclusion in the ESL Premiership alongside League of Legends: Wild Rift, with both games promising to make this an impressive season for fans and competitors."

"Through organizations like ESL, Intel remains committed to supporting esports at both grassroots and professional levels."

The addition of Valorant to the ESL Premiership follows the earlier announcement of Wild Rift, the series' first mobile title.
