With the intent to capitalize on the blooming esports industry in Japan, Capcom has officially announced a new team-based league for 2019: the Street Fighter League.

League matches are currently planned to feature 3-on-3 team battles, with six teams formed from a mix of both officially JeSU-pro licensed and unlicensed competitors. Capcom hopes to start in the Spring of ’19, though no date has officially been set yet.

This makes them the second fighting game company this month officially revealing plans to take advantage of Japan’s new Japanese eSports Union, right behind Arc System Works.
