We're finally nearing the end of the Capcom Pro Tour 2020 season. Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, all events leading up to the Capcom Cup 2020 finale have been played online. As such, we now know 19 out of the 20 possible competitors that will be participating.

As the reigning champion, iDom is the first player that qualified for Capcom Cup 2020. He is returning to defend his title after his major victory at Capcom Cup 2019.

Throughout the year, NVD|Phenom, DR Mandrake, XIAOMA|SKZ, RES|Pikoro, Takamura, BST|Daigo, Bandits|Caba, Nephew, Rise|Smug, NASR|AngryBird, RZR|Xian, U7|Jah_lexe, BST|Infexious, Bandits|MenaRD, RB|Gachikun, iG|Jiewa, GG|Rumours and XSK Samurai would also qualify as a result of their performance at tournaments in their local regions.

Of course, there's still the matter of the 20th and final qualifier spot. This will be decided via a fan voting nomination.

The eligible players for this voting process are AI|801 Strider, NASR|Big Bird, RB|Bonchan, CO|Dogura, SNB|Fujimura, BST|Fuudo, AZ|Kichipa-mu, GyoGun|Machabo, GyoGun|Mago, GyoGun|Moke, Victrix|Momochi, Liquid|Nemo, FAV|Sako, Rohto|Tokido, Talon|HotDog29, UYU|JB, Liquid|John Takeuchi, UYU|NL, UYU Oil King, PG|Punk, Mouz|Problem X, and TUQ|Zenith.
