CouchWarriors presents: Battle Arena Melbourne 9 (#BAM9)
Australia’s largest fighting game major Battle Arena Melbourne returns for the 9th time on May 12-14 - this year is BIG BAM!.
BIG BAM will be held at a world class venue in the heart of Melbourne CBD - the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC), right next to Crown.
BAM9 is also a Global Premier Event on the 2017 Capcom Pro Tour:
(Unlike last year, winners of Premier events are not guaranteed entry into the year-ending Capcom Cup, but are awarded a large amount of points towards their place on the CPT Global Leaderboards - 400 points, in fact: as many as getting to the Top 4 at Evolution!)
With a venue three times the size of last year and running 3 days Friday to Sunday, BAM9 will be a gaming conglomeration featuring FGC tournament hype, casuals and exhibitions, merchant and vendor booths, cosplay competition, potential hands on access to upcoming games, and more.
Date: Friday, May 12th – Sunday, May 14th
Location: Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, (Bay# TBA) 1 Convention Centre Pl, South Wharf VIC 3006
Entry Fees: $10 per tournament (or as listed)
Venue entry: $50 pre-reg - $60 late/ on the day registration
Spectator: $20 Weekend
(Pre-registration is $50 venue entry, pre-registration will close two weeks before the event and on the day entry will be $60.
