The first news is about Brazil’s visa approval for Global Esports’ VCT 2023 LOCK/IN. For the Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) 2023 LOCK/IN, Rushindra Sinha declared that the organization’s application for a visa to Brazil had been granted. In order to take part in the competition, Sinha claims that Global Esports’ athletes and team members will fly from India to Brazil in the next 10 days. The Valorant Championship Tour 2023 (VCT 2023) is the inaugural edition of the Valorant franchise league and the third official Valorant tournament circuit by Riot Games.

In the upcoming ten days, Global Esports will travel to Brazil.

30 franchise teams will compete in the Valorant International League throughout 2023, according to a September 2022 announcement from Riot Games. Riot Games invited each of the 30 franchise teams to participate in the inaugural VCT 2023 LOCK/IN tournament, which will be held in So Paulo, Brazil, between February 13 and March 4, to kick off the first version of the franchise league. The 30 teams competing in the competition will share the tournament’s substantial prize pool of $500,000 USD.

A franchise spot in the Valorant franchise league has been secured by Global Esports, one of the 30 teams. It should be noted that it was the sole team from India or South Asia to win a slot. In its ten-player lineup for the VCT 2023, Global Esports included five of its former Indian players and five players from other countries. To compete in the VCT 2023 LOCK/IN, the team’s athletes and members will fly to Brazil.

Since December, Global Esports has been attempting to obtain a Brazil visa. Indian players and team members of Global Esports were unable to attend the organization’s South Korea boot camp as scheduled due to the visa application. Last but not least, Sinha tweeted that the Brazil visa had arrived. In an earlier tweet, Sinha also mentioned that the team’s members and players would be departing for Brazil within the next 10 days.
