Capcom holding tournament for European SFIV players Europe will have their own tournament for Street Fighter IV. Players in the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, France and Spain will get to duke it out in 5 separate tournaments that will eventually pit them against one another.

The first leg of the competition will take place on XBox Live from May 1 through 17, 2009. Gamers must have the Championship Mode pack installed and they need to amass as many Grade Points as possible during this time.

The top 30 fighters in each country will then be invited to an exclusive 'Live Finals' at a secret destination within that country on May 30/31. The national champions that emerge will compete against each other for the European finals 13th/14th June.

You can sign up for this event if you meet the requirements here. And you can view all of the rules for the tournament on this page.

Although some readers on this site won't be eligible for the competition, it is interesting to see that Capcom is taking a completely different approach with this tournament in having the first part of the event take place online. They also state they may ban people from the tournament if their disconnect percentage is too high.
