EVO 2019 is quickly approaching. What is perhaps the largest fighting game tournament of the year will take place from August 2nd and last until August 4th and will be held at Las Vegas.

Paying for the trip can be an expensive venture. Luckily for five fighting game players, Justin Wong will be sponsoring them so that they may participate at EVO.

These players are Mhike2stronk, ElTigre, LostSoul, Zenith, and LZA Anya. You'll notice on each player's Twitter profile that they have temporarily added the JWONG tag in front of their names to commemorate their EVO sponsor.

Mhike2stronk is known as a Zangief player in Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition. LostSoul plays Elphelt in Guilty Gear and Wagner in Under Night In-Birth.

ElTigre appears to be playing Laura for Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition. Zenith is a Grand Master Menat user.

Finally, LZA Anya plays Asuka in Tekken 7. It's not just Street Fighter players that Justin Wong is sponsoring.

Justin Wong notes that anyone that's having trouble with their visas should try to work with Sherryjenix's eFight Pass program. We'll just have to see what kind of waves these sponsored players will be able to make at EVO this year.
