This weekend, Canada Cup Gaming will be putting on yet another installment of their popular Canada Cup tournament series. Previous events have been known to attract a large number of foreign competitors, sometimes to the detriment of its organizer, and this year’s looks to be no different thanks to a very different benefactor.
Canada Cup Gaming has announced over the past few days that Twitch will be flying in two very special competitors to take part in Canada Cup 2014’s Ultra Street Fighter IV tournament. Recent upstart Pepeday, who represents Japan’s Fukuoka Gamers Club, is set to show off his smothering El Fuerte yet again. Alongside him will be South Korean competitor Poongko, who has been known to similarly pressure other high-level talent with Seth in his time.
This will give both players the opportunity to qualify for next year’s Master Series, which will see previous Canada Cup champions, special invites, and others return to the northern country to compete for a $20,000 CDN prize pool.
Canada Cup 2014 is scheduled to take place this weekend, November 7-9, in Calagary, Alberta, Canada.
