Want to earn $7,000? Sign up for the Canada Cup 5v5 SSF4 AE v2012 tourney, cause you'd be the only one so far

In what may be a bit of an unprecedented move in the fighting game community, there's $10,000 CDN on the line for the Canada Cup 5v5 Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 tournament — but so far no entrants for the event.

The $10,000 pot bonus will be split in a 70/20/10 format, and by my math, a 3rd place finish would net at least $1,000 which would more than cover the $250 entry fee per team. Of course, if only one team enters, they'd be taking home at least a $7,000 pay check, so there's probably some good reasons to sign up.

The Canada Cup is well known for their SSF4 AE v2012 team tournaments, which have attracted players like MCZ|Daigo, Infiltration, DM|Xian, EG|Justin Wong, EG|PR Balrog, RZR|Fuudo, MCZ|Mago, AvM|GamerBee and more than we could possibly name here, in the past.

The CCG team is also throwing in $2,000 pot bonuses for SSF4 AE v2012, and UMvC3 singles tournaments, and a cool $1,000 for Super Smash Bros. Melee, so there's some hefty prizes on the line for those who attend. Scope out the event trailer below.
This year's Canada Cup will be held in Richmond, BC, Canada on September 27-29. If you'd like to register and find out more about the event, make sure you check out their website.
