As such, Capcom is looking to give SFV a proper sendoff, with this year's CPT leading up to the long-awaited return of the Capcom Cup, which has been absent since 2019 amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Players all over the world will get to compete in regional events to earn a spot in Capcom Cup. With more than a dozen events spread out across the globe, true to Street Fighter's nature, CPT is trying to find out the best world warriors to crown one as a winner. Let's take a look at everything you need to know about the Capcom Pro Tour in 2022.
CPT 2022 - Schedule
The Capcom Pro Tour will run from June until December. A few events have been played already, crowning four regional champions, however, from now on, we'll have a CPT event almost every other week.
There are three main ways players can earn their spot at Capcom Cup. Online qualifiers, offline premier tournaments, and a new system called the World Warrior regional program.
First, here is the full list of upcoming online qualifiers.
