Last Chance Qualifier

Starting with the Last Chance Qualifier, it will be running all day Dec. 13, with coverage available from the official CapcomFighters Twitch channel.

Some of the LCQ matches will likely end up on YouTube after the event, so keep your eyes out for that. 

What’s the Capcom Cup schedule?

Once the 32nd player earns their spot from the LCQ, Capcom Cup will officially begin. Starting Saturday, Dec.14 at 10:30am CT, the top 32 will get underway, with matches going until the field is narrowed down to 16 players for the final day. 

Once the Top 16 is decided, the Street Fighter League World Championship will kick off.

How can I watch the Capcom Cup Finals?

Capcom is going to be streaming all of the games on its main Twitch channel, CapcomFighters, so it will be very easy to keep up with all of the matches and player interviews going on throughout the weekend. 

All of the side events will also be streamed to the main page, which is why the schedule was laid out to have the Street Fighter League World Championship occur after top 32. This will keep the content on one channel so no one has to manage multiple streams, like Evo 2019. 

Where can I keep track of my favorite games and players?

Smash.gg has all of the brackets available for viewing right now, which will be constantly updated as the event goes on. Since the event is only 32 players deep, you should be able to open up which bracket is currently live and see how each player is doing. 

Or if you can’t find the specific player you are looking for, you can select the game they are competing in and search for their Gamertag to instantly pull up their results.
