James Bardolph, Creative Director of FACEIT Media commented: “Over the past two years, the Milan Games Week has proven to be the perfect venue for the Europe’s most skilled Street Fighter V warriors to face off.

“We’re excited to continue bringing these players together, and we look forward to future Capcom competitions in Street Fighter V and beyond.”

The tournament will be the third consecutive year the Capcom Pro Tour has hosted such an event at Milan Games Week.

The winner of each EU Regional Final will earn a qualifying spot in the Capcom Cup 2017. The Regional Finals Last Chance Qualifier will take place at 11am (UTC) on Saturday September 30th with the top player competing in the EU Regional Finals at 2:00pm (UTC) on the Sunday. The qualifying Street Fighter V winner will face off against the seven players who previously qualified from the EU Regional Ranking events throughout the year. 

AESVI President Paolo Chisari noted: “Milan Games Week is proud to host Europe’s most intense Street Fighter V and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite matches at the EU Regional Finals.”

“The return of the Capcom Pro Tour, along with a huge variety of other events and games will make Milan Games Week 2017 the most exciting yet!”, added Pier Luigi Parnofiello, Head of Esports at Fandango Club spa.
