The world of esports never really stops, but it has its lulls. For fighting game fanatics, EVO has become the definitive tournament that the community looks forward to every year. EVO recently posted a brand new trailer announcing the dates and location of the fighting game esports tournament. The fun will all kick off on August 2, 2019 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada. Please take a look.

EVO 2018 was one of the most hype fighting game tournaments ever held with tons of new champions crowned. Fans also witnessed the rise of Dragon Ball FighterZ as it set new records for concurrent viewers on Twitch at the event. One divisive and amazing character born out of the FGC scene is SonicFox, who took home first place in the DBFZ final. We can't wait to see what stories unfold at next year's tournament. EVO 2019 will be held from August 2-4 next year at Mandalay Bay in fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada.
