This will be a 128 player open bracket competition, taking place at the Canadian National Exhibition August 25 to 27 in Toronto, will be open for any competitor within North America. While it is a Canadian event, we aren’t excluding our fellow players south of the border as we know there is quite an abundance of talent down there too. The top 8 players from the open bracket will join the 8 community winners in a 16 player playoff bracket where they will fight for the $5,000 prize pool. Apart from the prize pool, the top 4 players in the playoff bracket will have secured their spot at Northern Arena Knockout in September.
Those wishing to attend or participate can visit the event page.
In order to participate in the competition, you will need to fulfill the following requirements:
*Participants will need to purchase initial entry passes to CNE. Complimentary passes will be provided to players who advance to subsequent days.
*Northern Arena will be providing a discount code for purchasing CNE tickets, see event page for more details.
*The tournament will be played on PS4 and players will be provided with DS4 controllers, but are free to bring their own controllers.
The 4 players who make it to Knockout in September have already accomplished great feats, but their hardest task awaits them as they will be placed in a 16 player double elimination bracket alongside 12 invited international professional Street Fighter V players. These highly skilled players will ultimately fight for the $30,000 prize pool. Full event details for Knockout will be released at a later date so be sure to sign up for our newsletter and follow us on social media for live updates.
