Valorant contract rules and requirements

There aren't many rules for this particular contract. However, these are the basic regulations that players must stick to in the 2023 Valorant season.

  • Contracts are prohibited from including non-compete clauses or “right of first refusal” clauses, preventing teams from prohibiting or inhibiting players from joining other teams upon the expiration of the original contract.
  • Contracts are limited to four seasons in duration, however, they may be structured to have a base initial term plus an option that allows both parties to mutually agree to an additional season or seasons. This base term plus optional seasons still cannot exceed four seasons.
  • Contracts are required to include provisions that prohibit team members from match-fixing, colluding, or gambling in regard to VCT matches.
  • Contracts are required to include an option to terminate the agreement for either party in the event that the other party “commits a material breach” of the contract.

How can trades be made?

The trades within the VCT 2023 partnered teams are fairly unregulated.

Teams are able to trade any number of players for any other number.

Trades can also be expanded to more than just two teams.

The whole contract seems to cover any legal area required but doesn't put too much pressure onto the players themselves.
