Nerd Street Gamers have been selected to host Stage 2 and 3 Challengers

Riot Games has selected Nerd Street Gamers as the Official Tournament Operator and Producer for all three stages of the VALORANT Champions Tour 2021 North America, as well as the Game Changers series. The announcement expands on Riot's previous deal with Nerd Street, which only granted coverage for the first stage of the VALORANT Champions Tour 2021.

The addition of the Game Changers series, which provides competitive opportunities for people of different genders, is a continuation of the collaboration between Nerd Street and Riot at the FTW Summer Showdown last year. The Summer Showdown was the first major women's event to be held at VALORANT with Riot Games prize support.
