The Philippines’ premier collegiate Valorant tournament will return later this month with 12 collegiate teams vying for campus glory.

Presented by Asus ROG, co-organized with Globe Telecom, along with Official Gear partner Logitech G, the third season of University Alliance Cup (UAC) Valorant will have students battle it out for PHP 150,000 worth of in-game prizes, merchandise, cash, and grants.


The UAC is an Alliance exclusive league, which means only teams composed of players from the same campus (and a part of AcadArena’s Alliance program) can participate.

All players participating in the UAC are eligible to apply for the Globe AcadArena Merit Esports Scholarship (G.A.M.E.S).


According to AcadArena’s official announcement, the tournament format and dates are as follows:



  • The twelve best collegiate teams in the Philippines will be divided into two groups for the group stage.
  • The teams will play in a best-of-one single round robin that will span five broadcast days.
  • The top three teams per group will advance to the playoffs.
  • Teams will be seeded in the playoff bracket based on group stage standing.
  • Quarters & semis are best-of-three with the grand finals being a best-of-five.
  • The bottom two teams of division A will be sent to the promotion tournament to defend their slot for Season 4 against the top two teams of division B.
