With a fresh new format, the stage is set, and the players are primed – here’s everything you need to know about the 2024 VCT Americas Season!



This year, the VCT Americas competitive season will be divided into two stages: Stage 1 and Stage 2. Each of the 11 VCT Americas teams will compete in a single round robin of BO3s scheduled across both stages. Stage 1 will consist of five weeks of regular season play, including one Super Week, while Stage 2 will run for four weeks with one Super Week.

Teams were divided into two groups via a random draw, Alpha and Omega, based on their Kickoff performance. For Stage 1, each team will play all teams from the other group. For Stage 2, teams will play the teams within their group.

The VCT Americas 2024 regular season dates:

Stage 1

Regular Season: April 6 - May 5

Mid-Season Playoffs: May 8 - 12

Stage 2

Regular Season: June 22 - July 14

Season Playoffs: July 17 - 21

Each stage will be followed by a mixed-elimination Playoff to determine which teams will advance to the global tournaments. After Stage 1, the top three teams in each group will qualify for the Mid-Season Playoffs. For the Season Playoffs after Stage 2, the top six teams from the entire regular season will advance. The top two teams will be awarded a first-round bye in the winner’s bracket. All matches will be best-of-three, except the Lower Bracket Final and Grand Final, which will be best-of-five. The top three finishers from the Mid-Season Playoffs qualify for Masters Shanghai, while the top three finishers of the Season Playoffs qualify for VCT Champions Seoul. The region’s fourth Champions slot will go to the remaining team with the most Championship Points.
