We first told you about /r/Kappa's crowdfunding campaign to send South Korea's Poongko and Infiltration to France to attend the Cannes Winter Clash on the day that the New York qualifier for the same tournament happened.

Yesterday we received word (and retweeted that the campaign was very close to reaching its donation goal.

And this morning we've received some fantastic news for those of you Ultra Street Fighter 4 fans looking forward to the CWC tournament later this month -- /r/Kappa's campaign to send South Korea's Poongko and Infiltration to CWC has successfully been funded. They're really going to France now, everyone!

At CWC Poongko and Infiltration will join the likes of Japan's Hori|Sako, France's MD|Luffy and GL|Valmaster, UK's DIG|Ryan Hart and CG|Problem X, New York's PIE|Smug and more (Edit: Such as China's Qanba|Xiao Hai who has been invited to attend the tournament). And it's all thanks to fans like you.

Like we've recently seen with Shadowloo Showdown 6, Poongko is a riot to have around at a tournament. And Infiltration ain't too shabby himself -- just check out this hilarious clip of him playing on stream below.
Cannes Winter Clash is scheduled to take place in France from February 27 to March 1.
