Group C of ELEAGUE's Street Fighter V Invitational is shaping up to be a showdown between some of America's most prominent world warriors.

Over the past two weeks, ELEAGUE’s Street Fighter V Invitational has showcased some of the very best fighters in the world. The matches held inside the ELEAGUE studios at TBS have been fast, furious, and at times, straight up mind-bottling with both champions and underdogs alike showing why they’re the cream of the FGC crop.

But heading into tonight’s Group C matches, it’s the tournament’s American stars that are set to punch their ticket to the Invitational’s playoffs on July 13 — and truly light the competition ablaze. 

In a change from recent weeks, four of the six world warriors set to face off tonight hail from the United States:

  • Justin “JWong” Wong
  • Du “NuckleDu” Dang
  • Bryant “Smug” Huggins
  • Darryl “SnakeEyez” Lewis

Early predictions from ELEAGUE’s Sajam and Zhi have “NuckleDu” making it through winners and into the playoffs, but as we’ve seen, literally anything can happen when fists start flying. 

Group C’s preliminary round-robin matches start at 3 p.m. EDT today on both Twitch and B/R Live.

Group C’s featured matches — which will showcase the group’s final four — will air on TBS at 11 p.m. EDT/PDT tonight

The American hopefuls will not only have to compete against each other but also against a Top-20 Benjamin “Problem X” Simon and a plucky Thomas “Brolynho” Proenca, who’s strong Necalli play has led him to upsets over championship players such as Infiltration at 2016’s Brooklyn Beatdown.
