BAM9 (2017)


#BAM9 is going BIG!

Australia’s largest fighting game major Battle Arena Melbourne (#BAM9) returns for the 9th time on May 12-14 – this year is BIG BAM!.

BIG BAM will be held at a world class venue in the heart of Melbourne CBD – the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC), right next to Crown.

BAM9 is also a Global Premier Event on the 2017 Capcom Pro Tour:

(Unlike last year, winners of Premier events are not guaranteed entry into the year-ending Capcom Cup, but are awarded a large amount of points towards their place on the CPT Global Leaderboards – 400 points, in fact: as many as getting to the Top 4 at Evolution!)

With a venue three times the size of last year and running 3 days Friday to Sunday, BAM9 will be a gaming conglomeration featuring FGC tournament hype, casuals and exhibitions, merchant and vendor booths, cosplay competition, potential hands on access to upcoming games, and more.

Date: Friday, May 12th – Sunday, May 14th
Location: Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, (Bay# TBA) 1 Convention Centre Pl, South Wharf VIC 3006

Facebook Event:

(Pre-registration is $50 for venue entry and will close on April 28th- on the day entry will be $60.
Registration for Smash WiiU and Melee is pre-registration only. All other on-the-day registration for games must be done one hour (TBC) before the game’s first pool starts.)

If you wish to join the event as a spectator, you are more than welcome! It’s only $20 to take in the event.
