Capcom has been working in various ways to grow esports, believing they have the potential to be the next generation of sports where–regardless of age, gender or physical differences–anyone can compete from anywhere in the world via the internet. In addition to running league matches from 2018 that give pro players an opportunity to shine, Capcom has been operating the Capcom Pro Tour since 2014, in which qualifying events are held in more than 40 countries around the globe leading up to the season-end finals at Capcom Cup, where a world-champion is crowned.
Capcom Pro Tour Online 2020 recently got underway and will feature a total of 18 events in 10 regions around the globe, held between mid-June and late-November. The Tour will be completely online this year, with both athletes and commentators participating remotely in order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Events will be made available for anyone to watch from anywhere, with English-language broadcasts streamed from Europe, North America and Asia on the Capcom Fighters channel and a Japanese-language broadcast streamed on Capcom Fighters JP. Further, Capcom looks to expand its global audience with partial commentary provided in Chinese for the first time beginning this year. Moreover, the 2020 season for Street Fighter League Pro: JP, which features 3-on-3 team battles, is scheduled for broadcast in Japan and China beginning in late September.
Capcom is committed to promoting industry development through building an environment where esports fans and competitors alike can enjoy the thrill of competition in the rapidly growing esports market.
