If you don’t have a chance to go to Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada and witness EVO Street Fighter V Finals in person, don’t worry. ESPN 2 stepped up once again and will cover the finals, enabling all the fans to enjoy in clashes of some of the best Street Fighter V players in the world. Last year was successful, drawing more than 2 million viewers, so it isn’t strange that ESPN decided to do this year as well. EVO Street Fighter V Finals coverage starts on Sunday at 10pm EDT/7pm PDT on ESPN2. Shoryuken brought us the statement from Kevin Lopes, director of ESPN programming and acquisitions about the event:
“It’s great to be back at the Evo Championship Series Finals with Street Fighter V this year. This final will provide no shortage of compelling competition, and we look forward to delivering this event to fans.”
