Riot Games has announced that it will host a Valorant tournament for the MENA (Middle East-North Africa) region starting in November. The tournament, Strike Arabia, is a two-stage tournament that will run from November 1 to 25. Logitech is the main sponsor of the event and has been named the official peripheral partner. There will be three sub-regional events that will take place in the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) countries, North Africa, the Levant and Egypt. The top three teams from each region will qualify for the main event, First Strike MENA, which takes place December 3-6. Teams from UAE, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and Oman will compete for the GCC event. The North Africa tournament will see teams from Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria face off, while teams from Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt will also compete in the Levant and Egypt. Strike Arabia Double Elimination Matches will be streamed via Valorant Arabia’s Facebook, YouTube and Twitch channels Sunday through Wednesday each week of the event. The First Strike tournament follows an announcement last week that Riot Games will add servers in the Middle East and Arabic language support for Valorant. First Strike MENA is one of a series of regional tournaments hosted by Riot Games around the world, each one being the top team in their respective region. This series, officially known as First Strike, will kick off the competitive Valorant scene.
