Alliance announce VALORANT entry, BanKs joins as General Manager | VALORANT NEWS

It seems the list of organizations entering European VALORANT is growing. Amid reports that Team Vitality are preparing their entry into the scene, Alliance have announced that they’re entering European VALORANT ahead of the Champions Tour in 2021.

Alliance are best known for their Dota 2 team, which has consistently been among the best teams in Europe and the world since it’s formation. They’ve attended The International multiple times, and won the event in 2013.

Alliance have already made one VALORANT announcement – caster James “BanKs” Banks has joined as the team’s General Manager. In Alliance’s official announcement, he said:
“This is a new challenge and a new chapter for me. I have been enjoying every aspect of VALORANT since beta. When I was first talking to the guys at Alliance they were very serious in how they wanted to approach the VALORANT scene and what they could offer a team.”

“Together with my experience and their fantastic support team we will be on the hunt for the right team or players to create something special. The facilities that Alliance have are impressive and I can’t wait to get the right players who are hungry, motivated and want to be the future champions of VALORANT under the Alliance banner.”

With Team Vitality looking to enter the scene, and G2 Esports, FunPlus Phoenix, and Ninjas in Pyjamas also in the hunt for new members, who do you think fits where? Who could Alliance pick up, and will they end up challenging the best in Europe? Let us know your thoughts!
