Super Girl Gamer Pro announces Valorant summer season

On Monday, Super Girl Gamer Pro announced its summer Valorant season. Qualifiers will run every Saturday from July 30-August 20, with an in-person championship event on September 17 at the Super Girl Surf Festival in San Diego, California.

Super Girl Gamer Pro is “a series dedicated to supporting women in gaming.” The organization was founded in 2017 to provide a platform for women and marginalized genders to take a larger role in the esports world. Super Girl Gamer Pro’s mission is to create a safe environment that can empower women/marginalized genders to participate in competitive gaming and facilitate a future where everyone has equal opportunities within esports.

Registration for the first week of Super Girl Gamer summer Valorant qualifiers on July 30 is now open for North American regions only. Teams that want to participate are allowed to have a standard five person team and two substitutes. Only people who identify as women who are 13 years of age or older are allowed to participate. There’s no entrance fee, so teams should be able to sign up regardless of financial resources. There also aren’t any skill or rank requirements to compete. The tournaments are single elimination, so one loss means a given team is out of that week’s competition. The LAN championship event in September will have a $10,000 prize pool available, but hopefuls will have to make it through the qualification events throughout the summer first.

Each week of qualifiers will have a bracket of 16 teams competing in the single elimination format. Matches during the group stages will be best-of-one, while the semi-finals and finals will be best-of-three. Teams who participate in the qualifiers will earn points based on their placements each week. The four teams with the highest point total at the end of the season will advance to the championship in San Diego for a shot at that prize.
