Yesterday, Capcom thrilled fans of the GFC with an announcement for plans to launch a Pro League eSports series in North America for its flagship fighting series Street Fighter. The series will focus on 3-vs-3 team battles inĀ Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition.

To form teams, Capcom will enlist the help of six of the top ranking players from the 2018 Capcom Pro Tour as team captains. Capcom expects the season to start in April of 2019, with tournaments airing every Thursday until June.

Are you looking forward to watching this new eSports league launch, or are you more interested in the post Season 1 draft, tentatively scheduled for August after the season?
