NuckleDu to fly out local Florida FGC talent to Evo 2018 this year

Top players have always had a history of supporting the fighting game community by trying to bring up rising talent. From Justin Wong’s tradition of sending players out under his “WongNation” tag, to Infiltration bringing NL, Verloren, and Xyzzy out to overseas events, and now MenaRD’s esports team supporting Dominican players, it is always great to see the top players give back.

2016 Capcom Cup champion NuckleDu is doing the same. This year, he has endeavored to send out one local player from his native Florida to Evo 2018, in an effort to “share with players who don’t have the opportunity to travel, to experience what I do on a daily basis.” The way to take advantage of this opportunity is to win a local tournament in Seminole — called GoTE — that has NuckleDu publicized in his Facebook post regarding his choice to give back to the FGC.

The tournament is tomorrow, on Tuesday the 13th at 6:00 PM ET, so make sure you are in attendance if you are in the area!
