TSM have announced they will be fielding an all-female Valorant team in the upcoming Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) Game Changers series. 

Led by Catherine ‘Cath’ Leroux, the squad will consist of  Katherine ‘LunarKats’ So, Emily ‘mle’ Peters, Zoe ‘Zoe’ Servais, and Mirna ‘Athxna’ Noureldin.

The VCT Game Changers Series is an array of esports tournaments held around the world throughout this year focused around creating ‘opportunities and exposure for women and other marginalised genders.’

Andy ‘Reginald’ Dinh, founder and CEO of TSM, said: ‘This team represents the core values of TSM. We wanted the best players to build out our competitive VALORANT presence – and we found them. 

‘Cath is a veteran leader who has shown clear dominance in various matches since 2017. Athxna shows real prowess as an in-game leader, and with the raw skill that LunarKats, mle, and Zoe possess, I see huge potential for this team.’

Cath added to the announcement: ‘I’m beyond excited to join a well-established organization like TSM and bring my previous experience from CSGO into a fresh game like Valorant. My competitive drive never left, and I’m looking forward to competing again under the TSM banner.’

The Canadian used to be a professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) player, and was a big part of the successful Dignitas Female team from 2017-19.

Counter Logic Gaming have also announced that they will have an all-female Valorant team, CLG Red, adding to the CS:GO team of the same name that was founded in 2015. 

TSM’s first match will be on March 19 in the Series I open qualifiers for VCT Game Changers, with a potential share of the $50,000 (£36,000) prize pool up for grabs if they make it to the top eight.
