Red Bull Instalock

Red Bull Instalock, described as the UK’s first professional women’s Valorant esports tournament of 2024, is set to take over the Bull Gaming Sphere in Shoreditch, London.

This will take place over two days on the weekend of April 20th and 21st 2024.

Red Bull Instalock will invite four of the world’s best women’s Valorant teams to battle it out to become inaugural champions: G2 Gozen, GiantX, Karmine Corp and Shopify Rebellion.

As stated, the LAN tournament will be broadcast from London’s Red Bull Gaming Sphere in Shoreditch, which will be transformed to replicate the in-game atmosphere of the Valorant map ‘Icebox’.

A unique format will be deployed to shake up traditional team compositions. Each team will be required to use three duelists, the game’s dedicated offensive class, which will ‘encourage aggressive plays while rewarding tactical expertise and clutch skills to promise viewers worldwide an exhilarating viewing experience’, Red Bull said.

The Semi-Finals on Saturday April 20th will set the stage for the Finals on Sunday April 21st.

Red Bull Instalock will also host a one-of-a-kind exhibition match, featuring a star-studded cast of fan-favourite Valorant creators.

Renowned British esports host, Yinsu Collins, will be headlining the broadcast, with commentary provided by Kieran “Kairo” Tulloch, Billie “BillieIDK” Purdie, Matt “Twiggy” Twigg, and Harry “Hazza” Chapman.

British Fnatic content creator and partnered streamer Megan ‘Megsoundslikeegg’ Garner will host the creator showmatch on Sunday April 21st. And Jorhdys will be a host content creator and take part in the creator showmatch, among others.

Looking ahead to the tournament, Red Bull Player and member of G2 Gozen, Michaela “mimi” Lintrup, said:

“It’s fantastic to see another event for women’s Valorant come into play and Red Bull Instalock is another amazing step into making a really lively competitive scene. It’s also going to be great for fans, with the format twist bringing a really exciting and new edge to every matchup.”
