Canada Cup is back this weekend with its fourth annual tournament! Canada Cup Gaming’s feature tournament series is perhaps best known for the International 5v5, the highlight event that brings together competitors from different areas of the globe to battle for the Street Fighter crown. While previous tournaments were held in Calgary, Alberta, Canada Cup 2013 is moving farther west, to Vancouver, British Columbia, at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel.

The International 5v5
The year’s International 5v5 is again for Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition Ver.2012, and as usual will have a double-elimination, character-lock format. Unlike previous years, however, the event is moving away from being invitational to an open format. Team Japan, who has won the event the past two years, is back again with the exact same team. Challenging the throne will be teams representing the United States, Asia and of course Canada.
With a starting pot of $10,000, a lot is on the line, but who will take home the cup? Find out this weekend!
- EG|Justin Wong
