Street Fighter League: Pro-JP operated by RAGE
Street Fighter League: Pro-JP is an exclusive event for holders of JeSU’s official Street Fighter 5 Japan eSports Pro License. The event will consist of six teams of three players each, for a 3-on-3 tournament.
This even will be the second season of “Street Fighter League powered by RAGE” which took place in March of this year.
The champion and runner-up teams from this tournament will go against the champion and runner-up teams from the Street Fighter League: Pro-US at the final tournament set to take place in North America, determining the strongest team in the world.
Like last time, there is scheduled to be a character ban at this competition as well.
Before the matches start, each team will decide a character to ban. Usage of that character will be forbidden during matches with that team.
Teams and Team Members
Now, we’ll introduce to you the teams and members that will be taking part in Street Fighter League: Pro-JP.
Each team has skilled members, and it’s impossible to even guess the outcome by only looking at the members.
Players Kawano, Shuto, Haku, and Yuji, winners of the Street Fighter League: College-JP are all new receivers of JeSU’s Street Fighter V Pro License. We’re looking forward to see how well they go this time around since their official pro debut.
