The North American VALORANT scene has been nothing short of electrifying these past few tournaments, with an incredible rivalry brewing between TSM and Sentinels, both of whom are exchanging blows. We are being given one final opportunity to see these two teams collide, thanks to the latest announcement by B Site.

B Site, known as the first global esports media company to be owned and run by team organizations, announced Pop Flash, the fourth and final Ignition Series tournament for the North American region with a $50,000 prize pool. The competition is going to be produced in conjunction with FACEIT, and kicks off the action on August 26th, 2020, and runs to August 30th, 2020.

Understandably, Pop Flash will feature the founding members of B Site, which are Cloud9, Dignitas, Envy, Immortals, and Gen.G Esports, in addition to, Sentinels, T1, and TSM. The eight participating teams will be split into two groups of four, to play three days of group stage, with the top two teams in each group qualifying to the playoffs. The final four teams will go head-to-head in a double elimination bracket format to determine the winner and champion of the final Ignition Series tournament of North America.

“We’re excited to join the VALORANT Ignition Series with Pop Flash. B Site is honored that we can help to lay the foundation for a brand new global esport in a way that sets a standard for sustainability and future success. Pro team organizations are just beginning to find their footing in this new arena and events like this will be a crucial stepping stone for player recruiting and team development,” says Christopher “MonteCristo” Mykles, Vice President of Brand at B Site.

Pop Flash will be hosted and casted by Christine “Potter” Chi, Alex "Mauisnake" Ellenberg, Daniel “ddk” Kapadia, and Erik “DoA” Lonnquist, with additional talent to be announced. All the action will be livestreamed on Flashpoint’s Twitch and YouTube channels.

There has still been no confirmation on whether it is the female team or they are going to announce a roster leading up to the tournament. We will have to wait and see

A Riot sponsored Ignition series that only includes 8 teams, which are owners or affiliated with the organization?

Am I reading that wrong? Why not include more teams and/or qualifiers?
