Capcom Pro Tour Online 2020 kicks off June 6th!

Notice of scheduling and format changes due to novel
coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

In light of the various travel restrictions and social
distancing guidelines around the world, Capcom has decided
to cancel all remaining offline (live) premiers, ranking events and
World Warrior events for the 2020 season. We recognize this may cause
difficulties for our tournament operators and production partners, but we
strongly believe that this is the best way to protect the community.

In place of the previous schedule, Capcom will be introducing 18 online regional tournaments, which kicks off with a tournament in the NA East region on June 6th. The stakes will be high for these events, as the winners from each of the 18 online tournaments will auto qualify for Capcom Cup 2020. In addition to the 18 online winners, the Capcom Cup 2019 Champion (iDom) will be offered a slot at Capcom Cup 2020. The final slot will be awarded to one of the 31 finalists from Capcom Cup 2019 through a community vote, bringing the total to 20 players who will compete to become the Capcom Cup 2020 champion.

In order to accommodate the new schedule, Capcom Cup 2020 will
move from Paris to the US and will now take place in the first quarter of
2021. We’ll have more details for Capcom Cup 2020 at a later date.

This is a radical and exciting departure from the normal
format, and we hope the community will join us in force as we
kick off Capcom Pro Tour Online 2020 on June 6th.

Please visit the Capcom Pro Tour site for the latest rules and schedule.

Please stay safe and we hope to see you all online soon and in
person after the situation improves.
