Event organizers, Beast of the East and Versus Asia have announced that this year’s SEA Major has been postponed to 2021.
The announcements were made via tweet, in which both organizations cite that the event has been delayed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. “We value the health and safety of the community, fans, and partners, and thank them for their support and understanding! We will be back in 2021,” read the message.
The South East Asia Major is annually hosted in Singapore, and is one of the most anticipated tournaments on the Capcom Pro Tour circuit as a Regional Open event, a culmination of the CPT Asia Regional Finals.
Last year’s SEA Major was packed with the best players from Southeast Asia and Japan. The CPT Asia Regional Open 2019 was won by Keita “Fuudo” Ai, while the CPT Asia Regional Finals was won by Atsushi “Fujimura” Fujimura.
For now, all professional Street Fighter V: Champion Edition players are focused on the ongoing Capcom Pro Tour online regional qualifiers, after which the winners advance to this year’s Capcom Pro Tour.
