With the Gfinity Esports Arena close to selling-out for the climax of the Street Fighter™ V Elite Series, Loading Bar Dalston and Gfinity have teamed-up to launch the official viewing party on Friday 1st December. For one night only, Capcom’s legendary fighting franchise will take over the bar with giveaways and gameplay challenges whilst revellers can enjoy the livestream from the UK’s home of esports.
On the evening of Friday 1st December, Loading Bar Dalston will stream all the action starting at 6pm. Guests will have the chance to win swag including Elite Series team merchandise, copies of Street Fighter V Deluxe Edition on Steam (comprising of the full game and character passes for the first two seasons) and special edition Street Fighter V Red Bull cans featuring a download code which unlocks exclusive costumes in the PlayStation 4 version of the game.
The second season of the Gfinity Elite Series started on 6th October with eight teams battling it out over seven gruelling weeks. The evening will see the top four teams compete for the right to be crowned Elite Series champions and walk-off with the first prize of £10,000. The line-up for the semi-final is:
- Envy vs exceL
- Prophecy vs Infused
“People have always used Loading Bar as a place to meet and play fighting games, including several of the Elite Series players.” said Jimmy Dance, Founder of Loading Bar. “We’ve had the Elite Series on in the bar every weekend, so it’s fitting we do something special for the finals.”
“We’re excited to be partnering with Loading Bar for the Street Fighter V finals,” said Shaun White, Head of Communications at Gfinity. “It promises to be a great night and we look forward to building a longer-term partnership with Loading Bar with more things to come in 2018,”
