Arcade club levels up!

In case you hadn’t heard, Arcade Club, the largest arcade in the UK, has just opened a second floor.  While Arcade Club was already an amazing venue, what this means for us is a more FGC/esports orientated experience.

And what better way to celebrate than holding a tournament?  By holding multiple tournaments!

Our friends at Manchester Battle Arena will be holding tournaments for every landmark Street Fighter release – that means Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo, Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike, Ultra Street Fighter 4 and Street Fighter 5.  They kindly asked us if we would like to be involved with the Super Turbo side of things, and fortunately things just fell into place.

So this is an event you won’t want to miss!  Arcade Club is located in Bury, just outside of Manchester, which is a huge fighting game community in itself.  We’re expecting this to be a busy event!

Registration information

£10 gets you entry to the venue plus a tournament of choice.  Any additional tournaments are £3 to enter.  The venue will be open from 12:00 and registration will be available from then until 14:00, after which the tournament will start shortly after.

MBA are aiming to have all tournaments done by 18:00, although the venue is open until 23:00.
