Ireland is set to host one of the European Ranking Events for the Pro Tour and will be included as part of Celtic Throwdown 2016, taking place September 3 and 4. The winner of the event will be one of 12 European Ranking winners, where each will continue on to the Regional Finals, until they reach the Capcom Cup.
32 players will play in the Capcom Cup, including the winner of EVO 2016 and 11 Global Premier Event winners.
