Bandai Namco recently announced a major tournament circuit for Dragon Ball FighterZ called the "Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour." Set to take place 2018 - 2019, not much was divulged about the upcoming competitive series.

A website for the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour recently went live, meaning we now have the details on the circuit.

Firstly, a partial schedule was released showing when and where players can join in on the World Tour. There will be seven major events, with the seventh being the finals on January 26th - 27th, 2019.

The tournament series kicks off with CEO 2018 in Daytona Beach, Florida, on June 28th - July 1st. Four other events are currently listed on the website, taking place in other regions such as the UK and Mexico, and there are still two major World Tour tournaments to be announced.

According to the World Tour website, players will not only be playing for prize money -- to which each major event will be given a $5,000 pot bonus and a $25,000 pot bonus for the finals -- but competitors will also be able to earn Dragon Balls by winning one of the World Tour "Saga" events.

"Featuring an innovative tour structure, players will compete for the 7 Dragon Balls at designated Saga Events worldwide," the site reads. "The more Dragon Balls a player possess, the higher seed they will be granted at the Finals of the tour."

If a player manages to win every Saga event on the tour and earn all seven Dragon Balls, they will obtain a bye to grand finals at the World Tour's finals. Essentially, said competitor is guaranteed a second place win at the World Tour finals, should they collect all of the Dragon Balls.

Along with receiving a Dragon Ball for winning a Saga event, the winner of each tournament will be given a spot at the finals. If a player who is already qualified wins another Saga event, they will receive a Dragon Ball, but the next eligible non-qualified player will be given a ticket to the last-chance qualifier event taking place the day of the finals.

Though it is not currently reflected in the schedule, the World Tour website makes mention of " over a dozen offline and online events across the world." We'll likely be seeing even more tournaments that are a part of the circuit that are separate from the major Saga events.

The Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour website has been constructed by the same people behind the Capcom Pro Tour site and that of the Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite Battle for the Stones event. This means standings and information similar to what we've seen from the other websites is likely inbound for the World Tour.
