The Evolution Championship Series (Evo), which represents the biggest and longest-running fighting game tournaments in the world, brings together the most skilled players from some of today’s most popular fighting games. This event will dominate Twitch when it’s on, but some fans are struggling to figure out when Evo 2017 takes place, and what the Twitch live stream schedule will be. Well, Shacknews will be attending the event, so we have you covered.
When is Evo 2017
Evo 2017 takes place from July 14-16, 2017. The event will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, with the festivities taking place at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, which explains why the UFC doesn’t have a PPV there this weekend.
