Canada Cup Vancouver is set to take place at the River Rock Casino Resort on July 1-2. Among the eight traditional fighting game events will be a special round robin tournament to send Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 off in style before the arrival of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite.


The special tournament will pit eight of the world's best UMvC3 players against each other in an epic battle for $2,000 CAD. At first, the round robin will be played in first-to-five format, but once top 4 begins we'll be seeing first-to ten.

As it stands right now, the current players confirmed to compete are as follows: FOX|Justin Wong, EG|NYChrisG, SPY|Filipino Champ, PG|RayRay, Circa||Jibrill, and Angelic.

Both RyanLV and ApologyMan have been invited, but are still pending.

If Canada Cup Vancouver goes over well this year, we may be seeing the event become a recurring, yearly competition.

Registration for each of the events is already open and will continue to be until June 28th. For more information, be sure to check out Canada Cup on Facebook and the official Canada Cup website.
