More cities, more online, more Street Fighter

Red Bull Proving Grounds Is Back for 2017

Eleven cities across North America will fight for the Red Bull Proving Grounds title.

Last year, Red Bull Proving Grounds helped support Street Fighter scenes across North America. From Canada to SoCal, players competed for the chance to prove their region’s superiority at the Red Bull Proving Grounds finals — and win a trip to the Capcom Cup North American Finals in the process.

Seems like everyone had fun. So let’s do it again — but this time, let’s step it up a notch.

Red Bull Proving Grounds is back in 2017 with more qualifying cities, more online competition and higher stakes. Players will compete in monthly competitions, racking up points to rise up the standings. At the end of the season, three top players from each of the eleven Red Bull Proving Grounds qualifying stops (plus three online warriors) will team up, meeting in Santa Monica to duke it out with the other regions for the title of Red Bull Proving Grounds champion. The champion of 2017 Spring Season will win a trip to Evo 2017 for themselves — and for the Top 8 in their region.

Sign-ups are already live. Check out our smash.gg homepage to get involved in your local scene or to sign up for our online qualifiers. Any other questions? We’ve got an infographic for that.
