PREMIER EVENT: Japan Cup 2016

Japan Cup 2016

It’s been a while since we’ve had a Premier Event, the last ones being Evolution and G-League in July, but that drought is coming to an end with an event which is something special! Japan Cup 2016 will be taking place at Tokyo Game Show in Japan on September 17th and 18th. Like previous Tokyo Game Show Premier Events, the format for Japan Cup will be a bit different from most other Premier Events. The tournament is limited to 256 players who are invited to take part, with some spots filled by lottery. Just take a look at the short list of players that are among those 256 and you can see the level of competition we have in store, with players from around the world taking part!
