Several North American Valorant professional players started to create a players association in August 2022. They set the goal of the organization to influence the Riot Games' decisions and represent the players' interests. The organizers officially announced the formation of AVPA in December 2021.
The first AVPA leader before the presidential and executive committee elections was ex-TSM coach, Taylor "tailored" Broomall.
