2023 College League of Legends and VALORANT Season Information Live!
History will be made this year. Will you be the first College VALORANT Champion?
At last, College VALORANT is here! Registration is open, and the best college VALORANT players in NA are assembling their teams. Team captains and varsity program leads can start registering their teams to see if their squad has what it takes to be the first team to lift the College VALORANT Trophy.
For players, faculty, fans, friends, and family, you can follow along with the College VALORANT Season on the official CVAL hub on Battlefy! The hub will be your one-stop-shop, showing results, upcoming matches, and links to register for all four regions, all school year long! Click here to see the CVAL Hub on Battlefy.
Like CLOL, the CVAL Discord will be the place for participating teams to keep up with season announcements, get support from tournament administrators, and contact other teams. All four regions will share the same server, with individual channels for each region. Click here to join the CVAL Discord.
We’ve already talked about the format and biggest changes on our 2023 VALORANT Season Info Page, and now we’re ready to share the full rules. Click on the red links below to view the respective documents.
Code of Conduct: All players and official staff members will be prompted to read and accept the RSAA Code of Conduct to participate as part of the registration process.
CVAL Season Rules & Format: Full information on season rules that apply to all participants, regardless of what region they compete in. Includes tournament format, player eligibility, match process, and more.
Each regional competition is based on VALORANT game servers and their local time zones. Teams may only enter one region per tournament, and are expected to enter the server that has the best connection and most relevant time zone to their physical location. Teams may agree to play individual matches on a different game server, subject to some limitations.
Teams may choose to change regions between tournaments, but doing so will forfeit all Championship Points earned from previous tournaments. Season Officials may block teams from switching regions to prevent situations where teams are seeking a competitive advantage other than better ping (no jumping regions to avoid strong opponents!).
|Region||Primary Game Server||Time Zone||Registration|
|North||US Central (Illinois)||Central||Register|
|East||US East (N. Virginia)||Eastern||Register|
|South||US Central (Texas)||Central||Register|
|West||US West (N. California)||Pacific||Register|
Each region will be run by one operations partner for the length of the season. All partners will use their own chosen platform for registration and tournament administration, but will share the CVAL Discord. Here is a brief introduction to some of this year’s partners:
eFuse was founded in 2018 as a social network to connect gamers to each other and opportunities in esports and gaming. On the platform, you’ll find jobs, scholarships, giveaways, and opportunities to participate in other gaming-related activities. Available as a web and mobile application, eFuse provides tools to build unique gaming portfolios, collaborate professionally, access opportunities, and create content.
Our consistent branding allows us to stay true to who we are, and provide the industry with a look and feel that’s memorable, unique, and easy to digest. The esports and gaming industry was built on designs that expand past the corporate box, and we’d like to keep it that way.

South: Rally Cry
