Evo World Final Schedule Live!
With Evolution 2006 World Finals only 8 days away, we have got the final schedule ready to go, so you can plan your day around it. After perfecting the schedule at Evo East and West, we have got it down where everything ran on time. That means bad news for all you slackers that like to come late. Chances are-if you are more than 10 minutes late this year, you will already be in the losers bracket. Don't be late this year, as we mean business!
Good Luck to all our competitors this year at Evolution World Finals in Las Vegas!

Welcome Back Marvel!
Marvel vs. Capcom 2 is one of the craziest twitchy fighters out there. Last year's finals were incredibly exciting, with Yipes upsetting the overwhelming favorite Justin Wong, and Duc Do coming out of retirement to take the title. This year's Marvel tournament should be wide open, and yes, we will raise the cash prizes well beyond the level of past Evos!

Tekken 5 Returns!
It should come as no surprise that Tekken 5 is returning as our first tournament game in 2006. For the past several years Tekken has been a staple at Evo, and we're looking forward to another great tournament this year. To make things, shall we say a little more interesting, we are spiking the prize pot, raising it well beyond the levels of previous Evos. More about that later, for now, check out this match from the Evo2005 Tekken 5 championship

Evo 2006! Three Times the Evo!
Welcome to the 2006 Evo website. After our incredible 2005 event, we couldn't resist kicking Evo into high gear. This year's Evo will be bigger and more exciting on all levels!
First off, Evo is coming to a city near you! We're expanding to a full season of events, with regional qualifiers in the New York and LA areas, two hubs of the fighting gaming community. Winners from the regionals will receive top seeds in the Evo World Finals, which returns to Las Vegas in early August. As always, all our events are open tournaments! Qualifying will give you a leg up on the competition, but expect those players who don't qualify to return at the finals, out for blood. We have some other surprises as wel, that we'll be unveiling over the coming weeks.
We're also happy to present Toyota Yaris as the title sponsor for Evo 2006. Stay tuned for more info soon!
