Valorant Champions Tour is one of the biggest esports events, which takes place every tail end of the year. With the 2024 season approaching, it’s worth looking back at the winners of all VCT finals so far. 

Valorant Champions Tour filters out the best teams worldwide and then pits them against each other on the grand stage at the end of every year. Since 2021, this event’s trophy has been the ultimate holy grail. The 2023 season just wrapped, and pros and fans are both anticipating the beginning of the next spell. 

Before that, here are the winners of all VCT finals so far:
