Next-level collegiate esports
“No other collegiate tournament is on the same level when it comes to the experience that Campus Clutch is providing,” Damian “Damo” Reiter from team BTR said.
“Most collegiate events feel like a watered down version of tier-1 events, which is fair due to less funding, however, I have really felt like I am experiencing what it feels like to be a professional player with this tournament,” he said.
Damo added that the Red Bull Campus Clutch tournament stands out to collegiate players because the experience involves travelling internationally, conducting interviews, attending photoshoots and more.
The VALORANT Campus Clutch Finals continue
The event continues at 8 a.m. EST with Project 5 against VAC Kimchi and BTR versus Anubis Gaming after. The finals are tentatively set for 11 p.m.
