The books are barely closed on the 2020 season and CPT is back with a jam-packed schedule for 2021.
Capcom Pro Tour 2021 will be a continuation of the 2020 format due to global travel restrictions and social distancing guidelines. The new season will be comprised of more than 30 online regional premiers set across 19 territories. Winners of these online premiers will auto qualify for Capcom Cup VIII which will be held in early 2022. The Capcom Cup VIII will offer a prize pool of more than $200,000. In addition, the top four finalists of each online premier will split a prize pool of $5,000.
The opening event of the 2021 season will be the first of four online premiers for Japan. Registration for the Japan #1 online premier opens March 29th with the tournament running Saturday April 17th and Sunday April 18th. Per usual, the tournament will be streamed on the Capcom Fighters Twitch and YouTube channels. For schedule and registration details visit – https://www.capcomprotour.com/
