26 spots for Capcom Cup will be up for grabs via regional leagues across the World Warrior tour, the last major event played on Street Fighter V.

If you've ever wanted the opportunity to take part in an official Street Fighter competition but have no means to travel to big offline tournaments, then World Warrior is aimed at players like you.

While there are online competitions like the premier events, these are usually dominated by the most established contenders in every region of the world. The World Warriors circuit, on the other hand, aims to give local competitors a chance to prove themselves on the biggest Capcom stage.

Capcom has paired with local tournament organizers across major regions to create a regional circuit in which Street Fighter fans can compete and accrue points, all leading to a final showdown between the top-placed players with a Capcom Cup spot on the line.

The World Warriors regional circuits will take place starting in July and going all the way to December. Each regional will organize a total of five local qualifiers, the eight players that top the leaderboards will then participate in the regional final, with the winner earning a spot for Capcom Cup IX.

Those first five events will be an open-bracket tournament, letting all those interested sign-up and prove their worth in Street Fighter V.

Capcom Cup World Warriors - Prize pool

Capcom didn't reveal information regarding prize pools for the World Warriors events. The premier online tournaments feature a $5k pot that is split between the top 4 of each competition.

Since the open-bracket qualifiers will not be organized by Capcom, it's safe to assume local TOs will be the ones in charge of setting prize pools and entry fees, if there are any.
