Red Bull has announced that 100 Thieves will join the field of Valorant teams competing at the Red Bull Home Ground tournament held in Manchester, England, next month.
The third edition of the Red Bull Home Ground will take place between December 9-11, with the event featuring some of the best squads from Europe and one North American team in 100 Thieves.
Other participants include Team Vitality, Team Liquid, FOKUS Clan, FUT Esports and BIG. The latter two teams qualified through the Turkish and EMEA qualifiers, respectively.
Team Vitality and Team Liquid will debut their new rosters for the 2023 VCT season at the event as both squads have undergone changes in the offseason. But fans are most excited to see the new-look 100 Thieves team.
Fans will be able to see the new 100 Thieves Valorant roster in action with the organization’s most recent acquisition in Matthew ‘Cryocells’ Panganiban in the lineup and Michael ‘Mikes’ Hockom as head coach.
100 Thieves have not participated in any offseason tournaments as a group so this event will serve as a test for the squad ahead of the VCT Kickoff tournament in Brazil in February 2023.
G2 Esports and Team Liquid were the previous winners of the Red Bull Home Ground, which is famous for its home-and-away format. This year’s event will be the first with a North American team battling for the top spot.
