Despite Evo 2021 being held primarily online, the organizers announced a new offline showcase pitting the regional winners against each other set to be played this upcoming 27th and 28th November at the UFC Apex arena in Las Vegas.
The Evo 2021 Showcase, as it's officially called, will pit players from North America, Latin America, Asia, and Europe to compete for the honour of being called the best in the world across the different titles available at this year's competition.
