Six national teams will be flying to Cambodia next month for the 32nd SEA Games – VALORANT event.
CAMBODIA – In preparation for the 32nd edition of the Southeast Asian Games, the organizer has recently released more details regarding the VALORANT competition that will be held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Running from May 8-10, the event will feature six national teams who will square off for medals.
It has been confirmed that the organizer, VNG and VIRESA, will draw the groups for the VALORANT tournament on May 5, three days before the start of the event. “VALORANT being officially featured in the Esports category of The 32nd edition of the Southeast Asian Games has made the dream of many Esports athletes come true: to wear their national colors with passion and pride. The most outstanding individuals from 6 countries will battle it out to determine which team is the best in Southeast Asia.” the announcement reads.
The Southeast Asian Games, commonly known as SEA Games, is a multi-sport event that is held every two years among Southeast Asian nations. The Games’ program includes various sports, and for the third time in a row, esports will be part of the competition.
Joining VALORANT at SEA Games are PUBGM, MLBB, and Wild Rift, which are already well-known internationally when it comes to the competitive esports scene. Crossfire is fairly popular in the early days of Southeast Asian esports, while AK2 (Attack Online 2) is mostly only popular in Cambodia and unfamiliar to most players of other countries in Southeast Asia.
Sources familiar with the situation suggest that the format will be comparable to that of the SEA Esports Championship 2023.
The tournament will take place in Olympia Mall, Phnom Penh, beginning with a single round-robin group held for the first two days, with the top four teams automatically progressing to the semi-finals. The playoffs will take place on Wednesday, May 10, featuring two semi-final matches, a third-place decider, and a grand final.
Alongside the schedule, the VALORANT rosters for the six national teams have been revealed. Indonesia, Singapore, and the Philippines headline the team list.
