Canada Cup and EGLX team up for 2018.
In a surprise venue switch, Canada Cup 2018 has moved from its originally-announced Toronto Airport Hilton location to partner with EGLX — the Enthusiast Gaming Live Expo — and set up at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in downtown Toronto instead.

The dates for the event (October 26-28) are unchanged. Additional features of the partnership with the gaming convention have yet to be revealed — while 24-hour gaming is still promised to be available at the new yet-unannounced event hotel.
Canada Cup 2018 is the perennial last Premier event on the Capcom Pro Tour before the Capcom Cup finale, aside from regional finals. It always hosts a wide selection of events, which this year includes the “Fight for the Future” Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Tournament Series event for Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike. Registration is open over on smash.gg. Eager attendees that have already booked accommodations are encouraged to contact organizer Lap Chi Duong if they experience problems making changes to their bookings.
