A constant presence in multiple games within the FGC, Circa Esports has announced that the organization will cease operation following this year’s Evo. Announced by Circa Esports CEO Marc Leikach on Twitter, this decision comes as the organization failed to receive a new round of investment capital, just as they were moving into new premises in Florida.

Speaking to Unikrn News following the Twitter statement, Leikach did not want Circa to “end up like the other organizations that screw over their players for not paying or sending them to events,” meaning closing up shop was the only feasible option. Despite the financial issues, currently sponsored players will have their contracts honored up until the end of Evo 2018.

Circa’s involvement in the FGC was not limited to a single game, picking up players and streamers for Injustice 2, Killer Instinct, Tekken 7, Street Fighter V, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Pokkén Tournament and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, to name but a few.
