VALORANT Premier is onto its next Act, and we’ve got the schedule so you know when your team needs to be ready to play.

Premier has been a success with frequent updates by Riot Games. It allows teams to compete right within the client and provides a path to pro. Each VALORANT Act has its own Premier schedule, and you could win your way into VCT Challengers through the mode.

We're continuing through 2024 and are moving on to Episode 9 Act 1. That brings some updates to VALORANT Premier, and a new schedule for teams to prepare for. Only the best of the best will make it through their Division and be crowned the Playoffs victors.

The overall premise of VALORANT Premier remains the same, but some aspects have changed. Here is each big tweak to the competitive mode:

  • The Invite Division goes live, giving players a chance to make a Challengers League
  • Only Contender eligible players can join a Contender or Invite team
  • Two match times per week, with the queue opening up 15 minutes prior
  • Strict rematch protection, a Bye if a match is not found, and zero points awarded for a loss
