Capcom Pro Tour 2021 SA premier details

Due to the global travel restrictions and social distancing guidelines, the Capcom Pro Tour 2021 follows the same format as in 2020. This means there are 30 online regional premiers set across 19 territories taking place. South Africa has one of these online regional premiers, and you can head on over to the tournament’s Smash.gg page now to register.

This is undoubtedly a huge opportunity for any South African Street Fighter V player. The top four finalists of each online premier will split a prize pool of $5,000. At the current Dollar to Rand exchange rate, that’s roughly R74,000. The biggest prize, however, is that the winner will qualify for the Capcom Cup VIII which will be held in early 2022. It features a mammoth $200,000 prize pool and the opportunity to play against the best in the world.

Registration closes on 23 August at 12:00 SAST. Check out the full schedule for the Capcom Pro Tour South Africa premier below.
