YRSF Presents: Rise of the Underdogs- AE Tournament, Casuals & SBV Stream

The Fighting Game Community in the greater Toronto area and beyond continues to grow, develop, and inspire new players to begin competing.

YRSF would like to provide an opportunity for everyone to have a chance at experiencing the thrill of winning a tournament. As such we will feature an “amateur only” tournament on Oct 15th.

On that same weekend, several of our Top Canadian players will be making their way to Ohio to compete in Season’s Beatings Velocity. We will have a stream of SBV running on a large screen so please join us to cheer them on!

There will also be dedicated casual stations available throughout the event, please see below for additional details.
