22 out of 24 participants have been revealed.

As we draw closer to the ELEAGUE Street Fighter V Invitational tournament — featuring 24 of the game’s top competitors divided into four Groups, fighting for $250,000 — we’re getting closer to seeing the full fight card. In addition to the 20 players we already knew, we’ve since seen tweets from PG|Infiltration and RISE|Smug announcing their impending participation in the event. The list of competitors so far:

  • Echo Fox|Justin Wong

That puts us at 22 out of 24 competitors for the event at the time of this writing; we need two more yet, and since a spot is reserved for the winner of ELEAGUE’s SFV reality show project ELEAGUE The Challenger: Street Fighter V, we can expect one other will surface soon aside from that. Two players have already been eliminated from the chance at a spot at the Invitational in the first two episodes of ELEAGUE The Challenger: Street Fighter V — LowTierGod and Sherry Jenix.

The ELEAGUE Street Fighter V Invitational will be broadcast on both Twitch and TBS beginning on Friday, June 1, starting with Group A at 3:00 PM ET (Noon PT), at twitch.tv/ELEAGUETV, before the TBS broadcast at 11:00 PM ET (8:00 PM PT.)
