Red Bull announced that the world finals of Campus Clutch, a global university VALORANT event, will be held at the Estádio do Pacaembu in Sao Paulo, Brazil, from December 13th to 16th.
Fifty teams will compete in the Red Bull Campus Clutch World Final. They all made it to this stage by doing well in different events held all over the world. These teams will compete for a prize pool of €20,000 (about £17,460) and a “exclusive VIP experience” at one of the official Riot Games-hosted 2023 VALORANT Champions Tour events.
Red Bull has teamed up with a number of companies to make sure that the event has everything it needs. These companies include Intel, the SteelSeries brand of peripherals, the Backforce brand of chairs, and the AOC brand of displays. Intel will show off its NUC line of gaming PCs, and AOC will show off its AGON brand of gaming PCs.
Red Bull says that the Red Bull Campus Clutch shows how “committed” the company is to helping the VALORANT community. This is what Red Bull says in a press release. Along with the college competition, the energy drink company also hosts the Red Bull Home Ground tournament, which is worth $100,000.
The stadium manager, Allegra Pacaembu, and the esports marketing company, Bad Boy Leeroy (BBL), worked together to build an esports arena inside the historic football stadium Pacaembu. This arena can be found in Pacaembu.
Pacaembu’s esports arena opened on November 4, 2022, at the e-Copa SP. This event was put on by the So Paulo prefecture and BBL, and it featured local competitions for CS:GO, FIFA, Free Fire, and Fortnite. In the year 2020, the opening of the arena was made public. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the venue won’t be finished by 2021, which was the original goal.
The Red Bull Campus Clutch Final takes place as esports in Brazil are growing at a rate that has never been seen before. IEM’s most recent Major tournament is currently going on in Rio de Janeiro, and it was just announced that an international VALORANT Champions Tour event will be held in Sao Paulo in 2023. These two events are keeping Brazil in the spotlight when it comes to esports around the world.
