The EVO APAC website is now live! This website contains all the information competitors and spectators need to know concerning the EVO APAC tournament, taking place at UTS, Sydney on the weekend of 29th-30th of May, 2010.
The site includes a section documenting the OzHadou APAC qualifier series of tournaments, and complete rules for the EVO APAC event. If you’ll be competing at EVO APAC, be sure to read the rules, as these are a little different to what’s typically used at Australian tournaments.
