“We’re excited to welcome our newest partner to the VCT.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Riot Games’ VALORANT Champions Tour,” said HyperX. “In almost two years, VALORANT has amassed a huge community and has now evolved into a global esports tournament. For over a decade, HyperX has sponsored pro esports teams and tournaments. Our experience and knowledge have become embedded into the development of our award-winning line up of gaming peripherals, including the Alloy gaming keyboards and Pulsefire gaming mice. We are excited to continue this tradition and ensure all players play better with HyperX.”
