Today is the final day of registration for OzHadou Nationals 14. At midnight tonight online registrations will close. With only 33 passes left to sell at the time of this post this will be our final call for registrations.
With registrations closing about a month from today, planning for the 14th OzHadou Nationals major in Sydney are ramping up. There are several qualifiers taking place around the country this month and discounts for early registrations will be ending very soon.
Once again OHN is nominating local tournaments around the country as OHN qualifier events. Players that place well in an OHN14 qualifier will receive rank seeding privileges in the official tournament brackets at OHN14. Below is the current list of OHN14 qualifiers that have been announced to date. Check details of each event to learn more about which games are eligible for rank seeds.
For those pursuing valuable Capcom Pro Tour Asia points these qualifiers are must-attend tournaments to help strong players get solid starting positions in the OHN14 brackets for Street Fighter V.
Check out these events to support your local scene and test your form ahead of OHN14.
Registration Discounts Ending July 31st
Registration for OHN14 has been opened for a while now. We already have over 100 competitors registered for the event and numbers are growing daily. OHN14 is shaping up to be one of the largest fighting game tournaments ever held in Sydney.
After July 31st the early-bird registration period will end with competitor pass prices increasing by $10. Orders for the limited-edition OHN14 t-shirt will also be closed once the early bird period has ended.
For those that need assistance to register, OzHadou will be taking OHN14 registrations in person for one day only – at YSB #44 on July 23rd (tomorrow). People are also encouraged to talk to other members of their local communities if they need help registering for OHN14, especially those attending any of the qualifier events listed above.
Make sure to register for OHN14 asap to secure your early bird discount and official t-shirt, and remember that OHN does not take any onsite registrations – all attendees must register online before August 22nd.
Finally for DIY tournament participants, please note that we’re taking tournament entry fees online for all DIY tournaments. This is a change to past OHN DIY tournaments so please remember to submit your registrations online. DIY games can be added to new and existing registrations up until August 22nd.
Visit the OHN website for a complete list of the official and DIY tournament games on offer.
