Both the world’s top female pros and top-level amateurs will compete for $100,000 in cash and prizes. The Series will kick-off with the Super Girl Gamer Spring Season on May 15 with an all-women’s Valorant tournament that consists of a four-week open qualifier series featuring high-level game play from female players across North America. The top four Valorant teams after the qualifying rounds will advance to the Super Girl Gamer Valorant Championships on June 19 based upon a cumulative ranking points system.
“This is a really important series for women, and I am so happy to be a part of it,” said Emmalee “EMUHLEET” Garrido (Los Angeles, Calif.), captain of the women’s CS:GO and Valorant teams for Dignitas. “It’s such a great step for Super Girl Gamer to expand its reach to women throughout North America via the seasonal tournament series that will run for 7 months. Most people recognize how critical it is to create meaningful opportunities for women, and it’s been gratifying to watch the progress Super Girl has made over the past five years.”The entire Super Girl Gamer Series will be streamed live on Twitch and Facebook Gaming. In its fifth year, the Super Girl Gamer Series was created to provide a platform for female gamers in a safe environment and to help both inspire and empower women to take a larger role within esports. Ultimately, the goal is to facilitate a future where women and men have an equal playing field within the gaming industry. As part of the Super Girl mission to provide opportunities for women in traditionally male-dominated industries, this unique series offers female gamers across North America of all skill levels a path towards greater recognition, access and acceptance. The Super Girl Gamer Series and its message is supported by several like-minded brands that are passionate about the importance of this platform and want to take a leadership role in developing equality for women in gaming. Nissan, Zenni Gaming, Twitch, GameStop, the US Marines, Space Productions and Facebook Gaming are each using their influence to amplify the Super Girl values and provide opportunities for women.
“When we launched the Hater Blocker campaign with Super Girl Gamer Pro’s Championships last fall, we couldn’t have imagined the level of support we’ve seen in the community for glasses that promote ending online bullying and harassment,” said Sean Pate, Brand Marketing & Communications Officer for Zenni, the leading online optical retailer. “We stand proud of our mission to provide eyewear for everyone, and we believe that gaming and esports opportunities should be for everyone as well. Partnering with Super Girl again to support their goal of empowering women through inclusion and equality is another great opportunity for us within the space.” “We are exceptionally grateful to have such a committed group of brand partners who are zealous about creating more diversity and inclusion in gaming,” said Rick Bratman, CEO of ASA Entertainment and producer of the Super Girl Series. “These companies understand that only through our collective voice can we change the culture and eliminate the toxicity that prevents women from more actively participating in the esports community.”To set an example for the rest of the industry, Super Girl Gamer has put together a skilled tournament staff, production crew and on-air talent pool that consists of almost entirely women, including legendary female leaders like Stephanie “missharvey” Harvey. The Valorant Qualifiers will run weekly on Saturdays between May 15 – June 5 from 3p – 10p EST with the Valorant Championship scheduled for Saturday, June 19 from 3p – 11p EST. Schedules and information for the Super Girl Gamer Series Summer, Fall and Winter seasons will be coming soon.
