Calyx, a subsidiary of Hockwood Games, has successfully concluded the finals of the inaugural VALORANT MENA League tournament in Riyadh, in partnership with Saudi Esports Federation, with a total prize pool of $80,000 (SAR 337,850).
Held at the Saudi eLeagues arena, one of Riyadh’s largest arenas, the league featured 152 teams from across the region and culminated in the grand finals featuring Team Falcons, Yalla Esports, Geekay Esports and XPLDZ. Streamed on Twitch, the grand final saw Team Falcons take on Geekay Esports, resulting in the Falcons lifting the trophy, as well as being crowned MVPs thanks to their dominant performance throughout the entire competition.
Team Falcons had a dominant streak throughout the league; winning split 1 and representing MENA in the VCT EMEA Qualifiers as well as winning split 2 and now winning the MENA Finals held in Riyadh. With their win, Team Falcons will now be eligible to represent the MENA region in the VRL EMEA Finals later this month where they will compete against the other winners of every VRL from across the entire EMEA region.
