Of course, you’ll likely prefer to be featured in the finals as a player instead of a bystander. If so, we suggest you start looking into qualifying events to participate in. See the following links for qualifiers that correspond to your location.
If you compete, be advised that the Playstation 4 is the primary tournament platform for all brackets. However, for the online qualifiers, players may participate from either the PS4 or PC platforms due to cross-play. While the local brackets will charge you for entry fees, online brackets are completely free to enter.
Red Bull Proving Grounds pits twelve regions against one another in a grueling competition based on Capcom’s successful esports title, Street Fighter V. Players in each region will compete for league points to climb the leaderboards. At the end of the season, the top three players from each region will band together to compete in the RBPG Fall Season Finals for the chance to be crowned the champions!
Prizes for winning the finals include not only $2,000 for each player in the winning team, but also a free trip to the Capcom Cup North American Finals at RBPG.
