EGX, the UK’s Biggest Gaming Event is the battleground for the Capcom Pro Tour 2018, EU Regional Finals.
The Fight Zone, where all the Street Fighter action takes place, has achieved amazing yearly growth. Partnering with Unequalled Media in 2013, The Fight Zone started as a standalone tournament before being buffed to a Capcom Pro Tour (CPT) Ranking event in 2014/15. The Fight Zone then achieved Premier status in 2016/17 and now stands aloft as the EU Regional Finals in 2018.
September 21 (Friday) to September 23 (Sunday) are the dates, the NEC Birmingham is the location and Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is the game. This is the Capcom Pro Tour 2018.
What is the Capcom Pro Tour?
The Capcom Pro Tour is the premier league destination for competitive fighting games. Featuring the latest flagship title of the legendary Street Fighter series, the CPT brings together players and spectators from all over the world to share their love of gaming. With 19 official events, and even more independently run tournaments involved, the CPT showcases the very best that competitive gaming has to offer.
