The Capcom Cup IX Will Happen In February 2023

Capcom revealed that Capcom Cup IX will be taking place this February, bringing an end to the Street Fighter V run for the esports event. The game has pretty much been the consistent flagbearer for the series ever since it took over in 2016. It has followed through every edition released since that time, followed by multiple challengers and some of the greatest players ever to pick up the game. But with Street Fighter 6 on the way in 2023, it's clear that all good things must come to an end. But at least they're going out with a bang as they are holding one of the largest tournaments the cup has seen, with a $300k prize pool on the line for those who manage to make it to the cup's final. The tournament will be held at the Avalon Hollywood & Bardot in Los Angeles, California, sometime in mid-February 2023, as we have more detail below of what will be taking place.
