Those who have tickets to the event will be eligible to compete in the Street Fighter V tournament, so if you want to get yourself in the game then you better act fast.

There is still speculation regarding whether or not premier events will continue to provide automatic qualification for the Capcom Cup but, as things currently stand, it is assumed that the winner of a Capcom Pro Tour Premier Event will be qualified for the CPT. More details regarding the CPT will be revealed on Monday, February 27th.
