The culmination of the 2016 Season of the Capcom Pro Tour is upon us with Capcom Cup 2016 this weekend on December 2 and December 3! 32 of the best Street Fighter V players will come together and fight for more than $400,000 in prizing, and the title of Street Fighter World Champion.
Capcom Cup this year will be a two day event with day one taking place at Esports Arena in Santa Ana, CA, and day two featuring the top eight finalists at PlayStation Experience at the Anaheim Convention Center.
Watch all the action live at twitch.tv/capcomfighters with day one streaming live from 9:00 AM to 12:00 AM Pacific and day two from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM Pacific.

Thanks to the support of all of our fans we’ve exceeded our goal by raising more than $150,000 in additional prize money for Capcom Cup 2016 due to the sales of the Capcom Pro Tour DLC. With a baseline of $250,000 this puts the total at more than $400,000 — the largest prize pool in fighting game history!
Not only does it pay to be a winner in terms of cold hard cash, but the winner of Capcom Cup 2016 will also make history in a few other ways.
First, just like last year, whoever takes first place will be able to help design their own Champion’s Choice Street Fighter V costume for whichever character they like. They’ll work with the Street Fighter V development team to provide feedback on various designs and ultimately choose the design they like the most.
Next, we’ve got a brand new trophy for Capcom Cup that is unlike any other. Each year, we will engrave the name of the champion to the base of the trophy so their legacy will never be forgotten. This mega-trophy will live at Capcom USA HQ and only be brought out each year for Capcom Cup.
That’s it for today! Remember to follow @CapcomFighters on Twitter for the latest updates on Capcom Cup!
