Super Smash Bros. Ultimate European Smash Ball Team Cup 2019

by on April 2, 2019

There’s a couple of big European tournaments happening at the moment in the Super Smash Bros. and Splatoon worlds.

The Splatoon 2 European Championships recently ended with French team Alliance Rogue taking top spot. Now is the turn of the European Super Smash Bros. Ultimate teams competing for first place in the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate European Smash Ball Team Cup 2019 (that’s quite a title) with the finals taking place in Amsterdam’s Beurs van Berlage on the 4th & 5th of May.

The winners of each of these tournaments will then head over to L.A. to take part in the World Championships which will be held on 8th June.

A limited number of tickets will be on sale soon if you fancy a trip to Amsterdam or were planning on being there anyway and are looking for something to do. If heading to Amsterdam doesn’t float your boat the finals will be streamed on the official Nintendo Twitch and YouTube channels.

To determine the European Smash Bros. Ultimate champions, each qualified team will be split into 4 groups of 3 teams with the top two teams in each group heading through to the quarter finals.

The winners of the quarter and semi finals will be detemrined by a best-of-five set out of the following matches:

Match 1: 2v2

Match 2: 1v1 Smashdown

Match 3: 1v1 Smashdown*

Match 4: 1v1 Smashdown*

Match 5: 3v3 Squad Strike

*Characters picked in previous rounds of Smashdown will not be available

All 3 members of each team must participate in at least one of the first 3 matches of the Set. In the Grand Final, matches 1 – 4 will be best of three.
