One of the most important and jam-packed fighting game events is back after a long hiatus due to COVID-19 -- Community Effort Orlando.
The event is known for hosting a massive amount of tournaments, rivalling Evo, including the latest and greatest fighting games as well as some classic competitive titles.
What distinguishes CEO from other events is its incredible wrestling-themed atmosphere, with the latter stages of tournaments taking place in an actual ring. In fact, for 2021, All Elite Wrestling has allowed CEO competitors to use their tracks to walk into the ring during finals.
With all that being said, let's take a look at everything you need to know about CEO 2021.
