EVO 2017's Street Fighter 5 finals are returning to a television set near you! This year's grand finale will be aired on ESPN2, broadcasting live from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The coverage is set to begin Sunday at 7 p.m. PDT / 10 p.m. EDT on ESPN2. Mobile viewers will also be able to catch the action via the ESPN app.

Those who can't watch on ESPN2 can tune in on EVO's main Twitch channel, and tickets for finals day are still available for purchase if you'd like to attend.

Along with the announcement, Shoryuken provided a statement from director of ESPN programming and acquisitions, Kevin Lopes. “It’s great to be back at the Evo Championship Series Finals with Street Fighter 5 this year. This final will provide no shortage of compelling competition, and we look forward to delivering this event to fans.”

Last year, we saw nearly 2 million people tune in to ESPN2's EVO broadcast. Hopefully we'll see close to the same number, if not, more than 2016.

Be sure to stay tuned here at EventHubs for the latest EVO 2017 coverage. As always, we will be covering the tournament with extensive results throughout the weekend.
