The inaugural season of STREET FIGHTER LEAGUE: Pro-US 2019, set to premier April 11th, has today revealed its full player roster. The League’s six teams will be led by Capcom Pro Tour heavyweights NuckleDu, Justin Wong, Punk, iDom, Toi and Nephew.
STREET FIGHTER LEAGUE: Pro-US 2019 is an all-new 3-on-3 tournament series featuring Street Fighter™ V: Arcade Edition and a unique “character ban” feature. At the start of each match, teams will have the opportunity to ban one character for the entirety of the match. Players must also choose different characters from their teammates for the duration of the match. The goal is for the teams to strategize the matchups in and out of game by working more closely as a team, especially if the best player may not necessarily get to play their best character exclusively.
During the first episode the captains will draft their teams from a pool of 12 players comprised of online qualifier and community vote winners. Players comprising the season 1 draft pool include:
Some of the top names in FGC broadcasting will lend their talents to the program with Rip acting as host and Tasty Steve, Rynge and Vicious providing play-by-play commentary.
Season one features 12 episodes and begins April 11th. Catch it on Twitch and YouTube.
Best of luck to all our players and participates!
