Sony’s officially-sanctioned Spain-based esports league will host a Capcom Pro Tour Ranking event, the company announced Monday.

The Liga PlayStation Street Fighter V tournament, which will take place Oct. 8 to 9 in Barcelona, is the 11th offline Ranking event announced for the European leg of the tour and the second scheduled to take place in Spain.

Each of the four regions that make up the Pro Tour—Europe, North America, Latin America, and Asia/Oceania—are scheduled to host 12 offline and two online Ranking events. Only 10 offline events had been listed under the European tag of the Pro Tour’s website before the addition of Liga PlayStation.

With the announcement, 44 of the 48 offline Ranking events have been named. Of the four events yet to be named, two will take place in Japan, one will take place in Brazil, and one will be hosted somewhere in Europe.

Capcom has also yet to announce the locations of the four regional finals, but one may have been announced on its behalf. FrogByte, host of this past weekend’s Pro Tour event in Pordenone, Italy, indicated on its website that the winner of the event will receive a trip to the European finals at DreamHack Winter in Jönköping, Sweden.

Capcom esports director Neidel “Haunts” Crisan denied that the Swedish event had been confirmed as host of the European final, but he did not exclude the possibility.

“We have not released details on any of our Regional Finals events so I’m not entirely sure where they got their information," he said. "That said, DH Winter was on the tour last year so maybe they just assumed that was the case. We’ll reveal details on the Regional Finals at a later date.”

DreamHack Winter would be a likely choice for the site of the European final. The event has been a part of the Pro Tour for the past two years and is scheduled to start on Nov. 24, which is after the final announced Pro Tour event of 2016 and before the typical December date for Capcom Cup.
