Final Round returns this year with the 20th installment in the popular tournament series. Taking place on March 10-12 in Atlanta, Georgia, the event aims to be bigger and better than ever.


The official Final Round Twitter account announced recently that this tournament will be a part of Capcom's 2017 Pro Tour. A full line up for this year's CPT events hasn't been released yet, making Final Round 20 one of the circuit's first to be revealed.

Last year, the Final Round crew and attendees encountered issues with the venue's size. In order to rectify that, this year's event is being held in a 37,500 sqft exhibit hall with all games being played in one room, tournament organizer Larry "Shin Blanka" Dixon explained in an official statement.

Additionally, Smash.gg will be handling the tournament's online registration management in order to ensure that things run smoothly. Players will be able to view their pool assignments within the week that online registration closes, as opposed to finding out hours before the competition begins.

2016's Pro Tour saw Final Round 19 as the second event on the official line up, taking place after Cannes Winter Clash in late February. If FR20 is one of the first tournaments to take place on the circuit this year, that gives players roughly two months to familiarize themselves with Street Fighter 5's Season 2 changes.
