Gamer Network has teamed up with Capcom and Unequalled Media to reveal that EGX 2016 will host a Capcom Pro Tour Premier Event.

In 2015, EGX successfully hosted a Ranking Event for the Capcom Pro Tour which saw players from all over the UK and Europe compete for valuable CPT (Capcom Pro Tour) points and a sizeable prize pot. Building on that success, EGX will now host one of Europe’s three Premier Events with even more ranking points up for grabs and a massive $15,000 prize pot. The winner of the EGX Premier Event will collect $7,000 along with a guaranteed spot in the Capcom Cup at the end of 2016.


The Premier Event will be hosted on the expanded Fight Zone stage at EGX 2016 and is set to take place over three days of the UK’s biggest games event. The Unequalled Media team will once again act as organisers. Expect entry details to be revealed at a later time.

Tickets for EGX 2016 are set to go on sale tomorrow, 11th February, with the event set to boast more playable games, game related features and floor space than ever before.
