Update: The Sydney Smash community will be joining forces with us at this YSB! Sign-ups for both Smash 4 and Melee will be taken from 12pm and both brackets will begin at 12:30.

Sydney’s premier monthly event will be returning once again in April . Please note that 99 on York have asked that all YSB attendees sign-in at the front desk whenever entering the venue, please make sure you sign-in from now on. Those driving in might want to consider a membership at the club – $5 a year with $5 off parking every visit (plus you won’t have sign-in as a temporary member every month).

We’re pleased to announce that YSB 41 will also be a qualifying event for Battle Arena Melbourne 8! The winner of both Street Fighter V and Mortal Kombat X will be granted seeding at Melbourne’s major next month.

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 and discounted entry will be offered to those who bring a full set-up (monitor + console).

See you there!
