For those looking to get a post-EVO fighting game fix, YSB returns to the Red Room on July 22nd. This month features a debut tournament for UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH Exe:Late[st] as well as all the latest and greatest from all corners of the scene.
All pre-registration will now be done through a Smash.GG portal for the event, where you can pay using a debit or credit card. Even if you are paying cash on the day, you can sign up online to make sure you’re in all your brackets ahead of time and then fix it up with the door staff upon arrival. Please make sure all tournament fees are fixed prior to the start of the tournament or you will be disqualified from the bracket.
Centralised registration on the day will cease at 1pm so if you arrive after that, please find one of the tournament organisers floating around and sign up via one of us. Registration for all Smash games open at 12 and close at 12:30.
Tournament times for this month are as follows:
*note: Registration closes 10 minutes prior to tournament time, please make sure you’re early so you don’t miss out

Tournament participation is optional and tournaments will only be run if there are a sufficient number of entrants for each bracket on the day. Signups will open 30 minutes before each scheduled start time and close 10 minutes before the bracket is scheduled to start, look for a YSB staff member to register. The tournament fee for SFV and Injustice 2 is $5 with the entry distributed to the top 3 players. Tournament fees for other games are up to the organiser of each respective tournament and will be decided on the day.
In addition to the listed tournaments, there will be plenty of casuals available for a variety of games on the day. These range from the KOF franchise to older titles to a variety of anime games. If you’d like to co-ordinate casuals for a particular game, drop a comment on the Facebook event or speak to a YSB staff member on the day and we’ll be more than happy to try and co-ordinate a setup. BYO set-ups are also strongly encouraged.
See you there!
