[Syd] Brackets Online for SFV at The Gamesmen – February 20th


Online pre-registrations for the OzHadou X The Gamesmen official Street Fighter V launch tournament have now closed. Thanks to all that prepaid for this event, allowing us to prepare the brackets in advance.

Based on the pre-registrations we’ve set a cap of 64 players for this tournament. Currently there are 18 spots still available for people that sign up on the day. These will be offered on a “first-come, first serve” basis, so if you want a shot at around $1,000 in prizes be sure to arrive early to avoid missing out.

To help us run the tournament we’ll be using 4 double elimination pools, with 2 players from each advancing to the final top 8 bracket. The brackets can be viewed on the OzHadou Challonge page. Please check your assigned pool and note your pool’s start time below.

Brackets: Challonge
On-the-day registrations: 11.30AM
Pool A: 12.00PM
Pool B: 1.00PM
Pool C: 2.00PM
Pool D: 3.00PM
Top 8: 4.00PM

Competitors need to be in-store at least 10 minutes prior to the start of their pool. Players that do not report to organisers when called to play will be disqualified.

Spectators are welcome, conditional on available space in the store. Casual play will be available where possible but please be aware that tournament matches must take precedence where necessary.

Finally if you can’t make it in on Saturday we’ll be streaming the action live via Goodpart’s Twitch TV channel. We have an embed of the stream available after the jump.


[Syd] Prepayments Open for SFV at The Gamesmen – February 20th


Street Fighter V is almost here, and the Sydney launch tournament organised by OzHadou in partnership with The Gamesmen and QV Software is less than a week away.

We’ve received fantastic support for this event on Facebook and want to make sure that people who come along have a great experience. With this in mind we’ve introduced online prepayments for participants. People who pay in advance will be guaranteed a place in the tournament, with their pool start time posted online beforehand.

We will still be taking registrations on the day, however remaining spaces in the tournament will be capped and entry on the day will be on a strict “first come, first serve” basis. On-the-day registrations may also have to wait if they are randomly seeded into a late-starting pool.

To prepay and secure your spot please follow these instructions. Prepayments will be closing at 7pm on Tuesday February 16th (SF5 launch day!), after which we will announce the player cap and provide pool assignments for all prepaid participants.

For full details about this tournament, including the fantastic prizes on offer, visit the official OzHadou event page.
