Bandi Namco Terminates Support for all Physical 2020 Esports Tournaments

Tekken, Soulcalibur VI, and Dragon Ball FighterZ physical 2020 tournaments have been moved to a digital platform due to COVID-19. We are to expect to hear news of a digital solution for all the named titles soon. Bandi Namco shared an official statement via their website.

Out of an abundance of care and caution for the health and safety of tournament participants and staff, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. has made the difficult decision to cancel official support for all remaining physical tournament events in the 2020 season for the TEKKEN, SOULCALIBUR, and DRAGON BALL FighterZ World Tours respectively. While BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment’s official support of physical tournament events has been cancelled for the 2020 season, we are finalizing online competition event solutions for the remainder of the year and aim to have more news to share soon.

Please note that while BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment’s official support for physical events has been cancelled for the 2020 World Tour, individual tournament organizers may still choose to continue holding physical events. We urge competitors and fans to seek tournament details through event websites and to use their best judgement regarding their personal on-site participation.

We want to thank our competitors and fans for their understanding in this matter and we look forward to bringing back physical events when conditions permit us to do so.

Stay safe, stay healthy, stay connected.
