Capcom Cup has been canceled due to rising cases of COVID-19 worldwide.

Capcom Cup was delayed last year and was moved from Paris to the US. It was rescheduled to take place during the first quarter of 2021.

Alongside the cancellation, the Street Fighter League World Championship scheduled for February 19-21 has also been canceled.

“While we strongly believe that we could have executed a great event with limited risk to players, staff, and crew, we have reevaluated as the situation has evolved and the state of this global pandemic has heightened,” said Capcom.

The company noted that in its place, an online only Season Final is being planned. This will allow the best players of the season to still be highlighted.

“All players that won an online premier will be invited to participate in the final and we are in the process of reaching out to all eligible players to secure their participation,” the company continued. “Details on the revised format will be available on the Capcom Pro Tour website in the next few weeks.

“We’d like to thank the fans, players and FGC for supporting Capcom Pro Tour through a challenging season. The community deserves a platform to celebrate their persistence in a challenging year, so our goal is to deliver that on February 20th and 21st across the Capcom Fighters network.”
