In the early winter of 2015, a small group of friends with a shared passion for fighting games got together and ran their first Ultra Street Fighter IV tournament at a local GameStop in Atlanta, Georgia. This was the beginning of DATA FGC.
A few years prior to this event, these friends had met each other by attending different fighting game tournaments. They would often talked about how they would like to improve the fighting game scene and imagined how it would be like if the players had a voice these events. The task seemed daunting at the time, but everything just made sense the more they thought about it. What started out as a simple SFV tournament has now expanded to a monthly tournament series called +2 on Block.
In addition to the growth of our tournaments, our family has also grown tremendously. Adapting to the increasing interest and demand for eSports, DATA FGC formed the first fighting game eSports team in Georgia comprised only of players from Georgia. With over 30 players in our group and team, we couldn’t be happier or prouder of our teammates and accomplishments.
We wouldn’t be here without our community and want to thank everyone for their support.
- Run quality tournaments by player for players
- Expand the fighting game community (FGC)
