Evo 2023: Full game schedule and how to watch

You won't be lacking action if you know where to watch.

Evo is back for its 2023 event, and it is bigger than ever. Evo will host multiple record-breaking tournaments as more than 9,000 competitors travel to Las Vegas to play on the fighting game community’s biggest stage.

The Evo team has gone all out this year, putting together a stacked lineup of games, content, and other featured goodies that will keep the FGC entertained from Aug. 4 to 6. From the main eight games to a host of community tournaments officially supported by Evo and Sony, there is no shortage of competition to watch this year. 

There are some significant changes to this year’s lineup, however, as all games will now feature a final broadcast top six instead of a top eight—in order to cut down on stream time and keep things moving at a fast pace throughout the weekend. This doesn’t change the overall viewing experience much outside of a slightly shorter finale to each game. 

I will be live on-site for the entire event and trying to catch as much of the in-person action myself, but if you want to optimize your at-home viewing experience, here is a helpful overview to help you watch as much Evo as possible!

How and where to watch Evo 2023

Just like with Evo 2022, there will be seven “stages” used at the in-person Evo venue and on Twitch to broadcast the action live to players around the globe. You can also check to see if your favorite content creator is co-streaming the event too, since Evo is once again allowing for official co-streams. 

Evo is hosting and supporting more tournaments than ever this year, but most viewers are really only looking to watch the eight “main stage” titles that are officially being run as part of Evo 2023. 

As always, every bit of Evo 2023’s main lineup from pools all the way to the top six will be streamed live from an Evo-branded Twitch channel. There are a total of seven different Evo channels that you will want to keep an eye on throughout the event from Aug. 4 to 6—not just the main one. 

Outside of day one, which will see it hosting panels and exhibition matches from the main stage, casual viewers can keep their eyes tuned there the main Evo Twitch channel since every top six for a game will be hosted there. This includes all of the action on Championship Sunday. 

If you want to catch any of the officially supported Community Showcase, which features 18 additional games, or the Bring Your Own Controller events on-site you will be popping around to different community channels like Team Spooky throughout the weekend.

Evo 2023: Full Community Showcase and BYOC schedule

Unlike in 2022, Evo is not hosting all of the Community Showcase events on a singular Twitch channel that viewers can easily tune into. Instead, various community members are streaming individual games to their own channels as they showcase their passion for games not included in the main lineup. 

The Evo team has included a detailed schedule breakdown for the Community Showcase on the official event website. Additionally, schedule master AmedeoAvocado has posted a detailed breakdown of the stream schedule and all of the channels on Twitter too. 

Likewise, Anime FGC news is hosting the Bring Your Own Controller tournament lineup this year and has a featured page for the entire Friday and Saturday event schedule that includes times and streams—though AmedeoAvocado also has a great post for this on Twitter too.
