How to watch Capcom Cup 2019 – Stream, schedule, bracket, interviews

Calum Patterson

The culmination of the Capcom Pro Tour is here, as the 32 best players meet in Los Angeles to battle for their share of the $250,000 prize pool and the coveted Capcom Cup.

With the exception of the 2018 Capcom Cup winner, Japan’s gachikun, all other players have had to qualify through either the Global Ranking leaderboard, or through regional qualifiers like at EGX.

With the top 26 in global rankings joined by the four regional finals winners, there’s also one final chance for the remaining spot, which will be decided by a last chance qualifier, which will kick off the event on Friday, December 13. You can check out the final placements in our Results Hub.
