Can Opener, TNS, and  ICFC to Combine for Stacked Tournament
Three of the best tournaments around will come together for the perfect tournament

Three of the biggest tournaments on the local scenes— Can Opener, ICFC, and Tampa Never Sleeps have announced that they will combine for a special in-person tournament at some point in the near future.

The Can Opener Series is a weekly tournament hosted by ICFYipes and YNC_Chung that features Street Fighter 6, MvC, GGST, and DNF Duel. Tampa Never Sleeps is a long standing Florida weekly started in 2011 and was created by Tong. It features several games while the ICFC (Intercontinental Fight Club) is another tournament that is an online and PC-based event hosted by Teno Media group. 

These three have been responsible for helping to keep the FGC going from the grassroots. In a community post on his YouTube Channel, Yipes announced that there is a plan to bring together all three tournaments for one super stacked event. From the post, we can understand that the plan is to have the top players from ICFC USA, ICFC EU and Asia, Can Opener Series, and TNS come together to fight.

The event will also be held offline which is great as most of these tournaments are online affairs. 

Details are still rather sparse as to what the winners get, the logistical possibilities, and the format, but hearing it alone must be encouraging.

What people might have not have noticed is that due to logistical difficulties and the allure of the online sphere, many grassroots events are shutting down, so when something new like this happens, it is always great. 

Also, the lack of offline events is worrying. This is a conversation that has been going around the FGC especially after it was discovered that the Capcom Pro Tour will only have three offline events which is a far cry from what used to be the case. Therefore, having a tournament like this be offline is encouraging. 

More details will be shared later, but such news should be exciting for all fans of fighting games.
