The Covid-19 virus concerns have been increasing with more measures being taken around the world to help stop the spread of the infection.
Capcom has also answered by taking off 3 of its next stops off the Capcom Pro Tour to deter players from attending the event. Brussels Challenge 2020, Norcal Regionals 2020, and April Annihilation 2020 have been taken off the tour. This only means that the points awarded to these events for CPT will be taken out of the pool for the tour as the events themselves are independently run. It’s an extremely unfortunate set of circumstances for everyone involved.

Good on Capcom to promote the health of the players above the competition. We hope and pray that the threat of the Covid-19 virus ends soon and that we can carry on meeting to fight and play again soon.
