The Virtual Athletics League(VAL) is dedicated to bringing joy and absolute energy behind VR esports to the world. It's all about the adrenaline and energy that comes from this new type of sport. VAL focuses its efforts on the three main pillars of international VR esports:

Working with game developers to prepare their games with the tools necessary to support esports events.

Helping VR arcades to become top tier VR esports centers and host their own tournaments.

And for competitors in VAL events worldwide, to not just play the hero, but be the hero!

What is VR esports
Traditional esports has quickly become a premier global entertainment stream and has forever changed the world’s perception of the video game industry.

Competitive gaming has grown from simple LAN events to the massive stadium filled arenas with millions of viewers.

Now video gaming, and its competitive nature, have evolved even further thanks to virtual reality. It combines the tactics and skills of esports with new physicality and athleticism.

From this evolution, the Virtual Athletics League (VAL) was born.

The Virtual Athletics League is changing the way the world views VR competition in a revolutionary way. We are seeing athletes, players at home, and arcade owners break new ground in an industry with untapped growth potential.

Our mission not only facilitates that growth but also creates an initiative for the community that will be integral to VR esports.

Arcade owners will finally have access to best practice checklists, and guides that significantly ease the burden of preparation for upcoming events.

While participants will have access to a global arcade locator feature that includes when and where the next event will take place, nearest to them.

These are only two of the incredible features that the VAL offers to the global world of VR esports.

How We Help...

Game Developers

We work closely with our affiliated game developers to ensure that their titles are ready, evaluated, and optimized for tournaments. This can entail anything from ensuring that the game functions in an arcade environment, to synchronizing their API to our tournament software in order to help facilitate a seamless, low-maintenance tournament creation process. This applies whether your game is a crowd-pleasing arcade leaderboard game or its a deeply skilled VR esports game that takes hours to master at home.

Players

The main focus in a competitive environment is always on the player experience. We want players to have an awesome time when entering their latest conquest of the leaderboards or throwing down in PvP action. We want to ensure that players, of all skill levels, feel like they are treated like professional VR esports stars regardless if they are participating with a team at their arcade, or jumping into one of our online events for players in their living rooms. For the most competitive VR athletes, we run LAN events in person.

Arcade

We strive to drive participants to our partner arcades through arcade exclusive tournament incentives, such as (but not limited to) larger cash prize pools, exclusive non-monetary prizes, and possible sponsor supplied peripherals or accessories. VAL emerged out of the VR arcade scene and has history and roots here.
