As a Signature Partner, Red Bull will have unique rights and opportunities including usage of a Signature Partner Mark, access to Valorant IP, and the opportunity to pursue joint co-marketing programs around the game in NA. Red Bull will also continue to bring viewers some of the most exciting plays Valorant has to offer: The Red Bull Clutch. Whenever a player defies the odds and turns certain defeat into a jaw-dropping victory, Red Bull will be there to capture the moment in-game and celebrate the showstopper. In addition to the Red Bull Clutch moments, this partnership will feature four annual Red Bull-hosted community Valorant tournaments for fans to enjoy. Red Bull deeply values contributing to the grassroot communities and the broader esports ecosystem. We can't wait to see what they produce and the amazing Valorant talent they're able to spotlight.

"Red Bull has been championing esports for as long as anyone can remember, we're ecstatic to be welcoming them back to VCT NA as a Signature Partner," said Matthew Archambault, Head of Partnerships & Business Development for North American Esports at Riot. "I think both parties know that we've only begun to scratch the surface of what's possible for competitive Valorant and we're thrilled to be taking our partnership to the next level of engagement."
