The inaugural season of the VCT China, the country’s highest tier of competitive VALORANT, is already underway with its Kickoff event set to conclude over the first weekend in March. All of the chairs for the players for this season are co-branded with DXRacer, with the company’s Drifting Series of chairs selected for the tournament.

DXRacer and Riot Games have already worked together during the VCT Qualifiers for China in 2023, but the extension and expansion of the partnership will see the chairs used throughout the entirety of the VCT China competitive season.

Esports agency SPORTFIVE has been a key facilitator of the deal, helping connect Riot Games and DXRacer whilst also facilitating the growth of the partnership.

Eike Gyllensvärd, President of Global Esports & Gaming at SPORTFIVE, commented: “We are honoured to renew the collaboration between DXRacer and VALORANT Champions Tour China.

“We eagerly anticipate supporting DXRacer as the special partner of the VALORANT Champions Tour China, seizing opportunities and exploring new possibilities at all levels of the event. Our goal is to leverage the event’s popularity, attract a younger user base, and maximize its overall presence.”

DXRacer has announced several important partnerships in 2023, including the partnerships with IO Esports and EPULZE for the Dota 2 Bali Major and the Evolution Championship Series to be the official chair partner of the events. The brand is also the official chair partner of NRG Esports and San Francisco Shock, two notable North American esports brands.
