Sources: VALORANT's first-ever world championship, Champions, is coming to Los Angeles later this year…

Prior to the report, Riot's Year One Anthem celebration video teased the location, by showcasing a promotion poster in the background with "Los Angeles" written at the bottom. Information from Upcomer advances only the tournament is set to take place in the City of Angels.

The exact venue is yet to be determined, subject to local COVID-19 regulations. Los Angeles is slowly returning to normality, with sporting events only now returning to regular capacity. The opening game for the NFL team Los Angeles Rams will house over 70,000 people, in a stadium capable of over 100,000 for major events.

Should the report be confirmed, it'll be Riot's first ever Valorant LAN tournament on American soil and its third Valorant LAN, after Masters Reykjavik and Masters Berlin, scheduled for September at the Verti Music Hall. They've previously held tournaments, like three LoL World Championships and multiple LCS splits in Los Angeles, being based in Santa Monica.
