official tekken world tour event

Cape Town Showdown is now officially part of the Tekken World Tour.

Since 2011, Cape Town Showdown (CTS) has brought competitive fighting game events to South African players. Amongst the variety of featured titles, the Tekken series has been a consistent feature in the tournament line-up.

CTS is now officially part of the Tekken World Tour, the first of its kind on African soil. By participating in this challenger event for Tekken 7, you stand a chance to win your share of (USD) $1000 and earn points in the Tekken World Tour!

CTS is a competitor-centric event developed by the South African Fighting Game Community members spanning several generations. If you’re a Tekken player and want to attend a fighting game tournament, CTS is the event to attend.

This template comes with Psd files, icons to fully customize it...

We hope you enjoy it using it as much as we did building it. Cheers!
