Nerd Street Gamers to operate and produce official North American VALORANT tournaments

Riot Games has announced an expansion of a partnership they already had with Nerd Street Gamers, a company network of esports venues and events. With the partnership, Nerd Street Gamers will be put in charge of producing and operating all VALORANT Champions Tour events for all three stages of competitive VALORANT this year.

The first stage of VALORANT esports is already close to finishing, with just a few online qualifiers remaining before the first VALORANT Masters event is held later this month. However, this isn't the only tournament series Nerd Street Gamers will be put in charge of. They'll also be running the Game Changer Series, which is aimed at providing a healthy competitive environment for people who face online harassment because of their gender.
