FTW Summer Showdown Powered by Nerd Street Gamers
Spectacor Gaming’s FTW: For The Women and Nerd Street Gamers have teamed up to host the FTW Summer Showdown, the largest all-women competitive VALORANT tournament featuring eight amateur, professional, and content creator VALORANT teams that have been extended an invitation, and four additional team spots filled by a qualifier event last weekend. The tournament is sponsored by T1 and G FUEL.
The VALORANT Team was inspired by the work NSG and FTW have been doing to provide a platform for competitive female VALORANT players. We were so inspired, we asked Nerd Street Gamers and FTW if we could officially make it part of the VALORANT Ignition Series and contribute $40,000 to bring the total prize pool to $50,000 to match previous Ignition Series events.
The tournament is the latest initiative of FTW: For The Women, a Spectacor Gaming-founded organization dedicated to building a welcoming and vibrant community for all women in gaming and will be streamed on twitch.tv/nerdstgamers at 5 PM ET / 2 PM PT on Friday, September 11 through Sunday, September 13.
