Proudly sponsored by CouchWarriors’ BAM Path To EVO program, three players achieved ANZ champion status at BAM11 this year. As a result their flights and accommodation is taken care of and they have arrived to make their mark at EVO!
Super Smash Bros Smash Ultimate Winner: Bradley Defective Dagger Kun

Tekken winner: Daniel “Wowzer” Collington
Wowzer in Tekken is a young player from NZ who in his first major tournament, fought his way through the ANZ special knockout event to win.
Street Fighter V winner: Travis Styles
Travis is a top SFV player but couldn’t attend the eastern states events to earn points. He claimed his spot as the top player in the main BAM tournament itself and won through.
