Yoodo, Malaysia’s first truly customisable and 100% digital mobile service has put the call out to controller combatants across Malaysia as it announced the Yoodo FV Major Cup 2020 – a national level competitive fighting game competition.

The gloves are coming off for the inaugural Yoodo FV Major Cup 2020 that will feature two of the world’s most popular competitive fighting games – Street Fighter V and Tekken 7. The epic battle will feature 5 qualifiers and one grand final with up to a total of 320 competitors.

The victors at the end of the competition for each game will represent team Yoodo FV at the international level EVO Vegas 2021. There they will wave the Malaysian flag as they do battle against the very best roster of fighters from across the globe.

“Yoodo is proud to once again be empowering the search for local talent, this time as the title sponsor for the Yoodo FV Major Cup 2020,” said Chow Tuck Mun, Head of Yoodo. “We have always championed grassroots initiatives that directly engage with local talent. This is what Yoodo FV is about, finding the best of the best and shining a global spotlight on their talent.”

The competition, which is opened to all Malaysians, is set to get off to an action-packed start with 2 rounds of online qualifiers on 25th and 26th April as well as 30th and 31st May respectively. There will then be 3 additional on-ground qualifiers at Geek Empire (27th June and 25th July) and Epicentre (22nd August). On-ground qualifiers and their corresponding dates are subject to change based on COVID-19 situation and Government advice.

The winners from the online qualifiers as well as the top 2 from the on-ground qualifiers will then progress to the grand finals at Quill City Mall on 19th and 20th September.

“Even though we are all at home during this Movement Control Order period, we believe that the Yoodo FV Major Cup 2020 is the perfect conduit to connect and entertain Malaysians, bridging the distance and helping Malaysians bond over a common passion,” added Tuck Mun.

The Competition comes off the back of the recent announcement of Yoodo FV, a competitive fighting game esports team created through a collaboration between Yoodo and Flash Vision Esports – a local esports team management organisation.

This is the latest in Yoodo’s increasing commitment to gaming, esports and gamers following the highly successful Yoodo Gank – a Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) Mobile esports team as well as the PUBG MOBILE National Championship and the PUBG MOBILE Campus Championship.

Registration for the Yoodo FV Major Cup 2020 is currently open with the minimal registration fee of just RM20. As a sign of goodwill all proceeds from the registration for the first qualifier will be donated to the National Zoo of Malaysia.
