Welcome HyperX to VALORANT First Strike!


With the first European Qualifiers looming on the horizon, we are excited to welcome HyperX as the Main Partner for VALORANT First Strike in Europe, Turkey, and Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS)!

As one of the leading peripheral brands in esports, HyperX will level up the competition by presenting the Players of the Series in the First Strike quarter- and semifinals, and the MVP of the tournament.

“HyperX has supported esports and tournaments for over a decade and are thrilled to extend our support for the VALORANT community by sponsoring the VALORANT First Strike tournaments in Europe, Russia and Turkey. Our high quality gaming peripherals are designed to assist players in reaching greater heights and steal victory from their rivals. We wish all the teams the best of luck in the tournament.” Says Jessany Van’t Hoff, Head of Global Gaming Partnerships for HyperX

“We are thrilled to have one of the flagship peripheral brands in esports join us in our first official VALORANT tournament,” said Alban Dechelotte, Head of Partnership and Business Development, Riot Games EMEA. “We want to kick off VALORANT esports with a bang and having a brand so devoted to the industry and community by our side will ensure a great tournament for the players and viewers in Europe, Turkey, and CIS.”

We couldn’t be more excited to launch the next chapter of VALORANT esports in Europe. The action begins on November 09th when hopeful teams will begin to battle it out for a piece of the €85,000 prize pool to be awarded the title of First Strike Champions. Earlier this year, we saw European teams dominating the competition in the VALORANT Ignition Series and we cannot wait to see who will rise to the top and claim the EU crown of the First Strike VALORANT Champions in December.
