BAM9 is a Global Premier Event for CPT 2017

Capcom has revealed details about the 2017 Capcom Pro Tour structure, confirming Battle Arena Melbourne 9 as a Global Premier Event!

Unlike last year, winners of Premier events are not guaranteed entry into the year-ending Capcom Cup, but are awarded a large amount of points towards their place on the CPT Global Leaderboards – 400 points. This is as many as getting to the Top 4 at Evolution!

BAM is the one of the largest annual fighting game tournaments in the southern hemisphere, and BAM9 is shaping to be the biggest one yet! Registration is now open.
