The second Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour season culminates with the finals this weekend, as the 16 best players in the world fight for the ultimate title.
The World Tour finals will be one of the best chances to see top players come together ahead of EVO 2020 later this year, featuring the likes of Dominique “SonicFox” McLean, WaWa and more.
So who will come out on top? Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour 2020 Finals.

The event takes place across 8-9th February in Paris, France at the Pavillon Baltard concert hall.
The first day will see players who haven’t yet qualified compete in the Last Chance Qualifier to bag the 16th spot in the finals. This will be followed by the top 16 players being whittled down to a top eight.
On the Sunday, there will be a screening of the Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie. This will be followed by the top eight competing to be crowned winner of the World Tour 2020.
What is the prize pool?
Players will be competing for their share of a $80,000 prize pool, with the winner receiving $24,000, second place $13,600, and third $9,600.

Who will win the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour 2020?
Goichi “Go1” Kishida is currently top of the official standings and is widely regarded as the best Dragon Ball FighterZ player in the world, after beating SonicFox at EVO 2019.
As with any major tournament though, the potential is there for a surprise upset. Fenritti is close behind on the leaderboards in second place, while Wawa could find some extra motivation being on French home soil.
