Earlier: The ELEAGUE Street Fighter 5 Invitational 2018 was announced late last month and is set to kick off on June 1st. This competition will pit 24 of the best Street Fighter players against each other in a battle for a $250,000 prize pool.

These players will compete in four different groups, with each group playing every Friday starting June 1st at 11 p.m. EDT / 8 p.m. PDT through the 22nd. Two top contenders from each group will head to the Playoffs and Grand Finals -- which starts on July 13th.

Today, the first handful of players has been revealed. FOX|Justin Wong, CYG|Daigo Umehara, FOX|Punk, NVD|Phenom, 801 Strider and others are all confirmed to take part in the invitational.

Before the main event goes down, we will be seeing The Challenger: Street Fighter 5 play out. This is ELEAGUE's first reality TV show and the winner here will earn one of the 24 spots on the main card.
