With the VALORANT Champions Tour ongoing and the success it has achieved, Riot has planned to include more regions for the global event. Earlier today, Riot has announced an elaborate set of tournaments for the Arab region named Strike Arabia.

The tournament, Strike Arabia will be hosted by Riot games and teams surrounding the Arab Gulf, Iraq, Egypt, North Africa and the Levant will be eligible to participate. Unlike other tournaments by Riot requiring players to be at least at the rank of Immortal, Strike Arabia will not have any rank restrictions.
