The next stop on the North American Capcom Pro Tour will be New York’s Defend the North. Things will kick off on Friday, July 29 with team tournaments and special exhibitions including Battle of the Boroughs, a special 5-on-5 Street Fighter V team tournament. Now in its third year, Defend the North will host official tournaments for 10 different games over the course of the weekend.

Defend the North is the East Coast’s first CPT ranking event of the season and will feature much of New York’s top talent, such as Evo Finalist L.I. Joe, F3| Alucard, OG| Shine and PIE| Smug. They’ll do their best to protect their home turf against a list of confirmed attendees that includes Fox| Julio, EG| KBrad, EG| Ricki Ortiz, Liquid| KnuckleDu, RB| Snake Eyes, Ronin| Alex Myers and NYChrisG, who returns New York from Southern California.

As a North American Ranking Event, the winner of Street Fighter V at Defend the North will qualify for the 16-player Regional Finals and earn a free trip to the event later this year.


Team Queens has earned the title “Kings of the North,” needing just 3 team members on Day 2 to win the 5v5 Battle of the Boroughs exhibition. Organized by Dwayne “D’Nyce” Buchanan and sponsored by Sennheiser, the winning team in the single elimination bracket took home $1,000.


The event was streamed by TeamSp00ky  and you can find the bracket here. Due to complications two of the original teams were replaced by out of state representatives from Michigan and the Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia area. Here are the final team lineups (captains in bold):

  • Team Long Island: L.I. Joe, Marvisto, Moons, OG Shine and F3| Alucard
