The preliminary rounds are over, and the regular season of Turner and IMG’s ELEAGUE Street Fighter Invitational begins in earnest soon. Group A coverage starts on Friday, with six Street Fighter V players vying for two spots in the playoffs. Following the group stages, the playoff rounds will determine the eventual money placements, with the champion taking the majority of the $250,000 prize pool.
A total of 24 players will be competing in these group stages. Last week the preliminary rounds offered up some major upsets and surprises, as players like Kenneth “K-Brad” Bradley were bounced from the tournament following a bad day of matches. The remaining players will continue to compete in the group stages on Friday evenings, with Group B on April 21st; Group C on May 5th and Group D on May 12th.
Broadcast: 6pm EST on Twitch, and a special live show at 10pm EST, on TBS stations and Twitch
Location: Turner’s GFUEL ELEAGUE Arena in Atlanta, Georgia
