Remember to Register early for BAM10! Platinum level tournaments rego will cut off strictly on May 13. The clock is ticking and you don’t want to miss what’s in store.

This includes SFV, Tekken, DBFZ and ALL Smash tournaments. This allows us to provide a better tournament experience, particularly as these games all start Saturday morning.  Make sure you have your registration in and don’t let your friends let it slide!

Capcom Pro Tour, Tekken World Tour, the first major Dragon Ball FighterZ event in Australia, plus Armada for Melee and the biggest Smash4 event yet, it’s all on the line.

Venue registration is still only $50 but goes up to $60 on May 6, and $70 on May 18 (day of BAM10). However, you will NOT be able to register for the above games.  All other games (Gold and Silver) will allow registration up to an hour before.
