Riot Games have announced that it will host its first-ever Collegiate VALORANT Season (CVAL) during 2022-23.
The VALORANT Collegiate season will be open to college teams in the USA and Canada. It will be composed of three tournaments across the four server regions (North, South, East, and West).
There will be three tournaments over Fall, Winter, and Spring, culminating in a single collegiate VALORANT Championship event. The final rounds will be live in LA around May or June 2023.
Colleges can take part on whichever server works best for them. Still, they can only earn credit towards the Collegiate VALORANT Championship in one region. In addition, Riot will award scholarship prizes at all three season tournaments, as well as at the Championship event.

Riot has asked third-party tournament administrators to collaborate and work together to make CVAL possible. Each administrator will be responsible for one or more of the regional tournaments. The season will operate through a single central Discord server.
Riot Games will release more details regarding how the season will work, rules, and eligibility requirements in August 2022.
Collegiate League of Legends (CLOL) has seen tremendous growth in the past few years. Riot has stated that they will move to a non-exclusive high school model, allowing all tournament organizers to host scholastic competitions across North America.
With Riot now focusing on collegiate VALORANT through CVAL, it will allow more opportunities for the esports industry to grow and encourage new collegiate teams and initiatives within schools.
