2018 Capcom Pro Tour Ranking Event

Compete in the Capcom Pro Tour

The Capcom Pro Tour is back at East Coast Throwdown. Together, players and spectators from all over the world will gather to share their love of Street Fighter at ECT. We are proud to be back on the Pro Tour again this year. The CPT showcases the very best that competitive Street Fighter V has to offer, so train up! At ECT Capcom will award ranking points to the top 8 players. These points are tracked on the Global Ranking Point Leaderboard. It will be a grueling journey to make it through pools in order to compete for the title. Remember; there will be no on-site registration for any games at ECT that are part of an esports league, including Street Fighter V, so make sure you register now!
