On Monday, Australian esports organization ORDER announced that they’ve partnered with Riot Games to be the official OCE TFT esports event organizer until mid-2023. That means that the OCE TFT umbrella will be ORDER’s until the end of the eighth TFT expansion. Currently, TFT is on its sixth and expansions roll out in six-month intervals.

“We’re thrilled to expand the highly successful partnership between ORDER and Riot Games which began with the very first Ignition Series in the Oceanic VALORANT Open,” Josh Swift, head of events at ORDER, said in the announcement.

ORDER has been handling the TFT events in the OCE region since set four, TFT: Fates. Before ORDER came into the mix, the OCE region was combined with the North American region.  Ever since they took over, and OCE has operated as a separate region, both the TFT OCE Fates champion “Razza” and TFT OCE Reckoning champion “Escha” have managed to make it all the way to the finals of the TFT World Championship.

“[Were] signing on to run TFT esports in Oceania through until the end of Set 8 in 2023,” Swift said. “After the Galaxies Championship, ORDER worked hard to improve the competitive scene in Oceania. And, across Fates and Reckoning, we continued to work hard to bring the best possible experience to competitors.”

ORDER is currently in the middle of the TFT: Gizmos & Gadgets competitive season in the OCE region.

“Over the past two sets, we have seen an incredible reaction from the Oceanic TFT community around the competitions that ORDER has organized as part of our global ecosystem,” Derek Dennis, NA & OCE Competitive TFT Lead at Riot Games, said. “We are excited to continue our partnership with ORDER through at least Set 8 and look forward to seeing a competitor from Oceania capture the World Championship in the near future.”

Their OCE TFT circuit for TFT Set 6 will culminate with the TFT OCE Gizmos & Gadgets regional finals during the first weekend of April. That event will decide which player will represent OCE at the TFT Gizmos & Gadgets World Championship later this year.
