Evo 2024 is set to take place on July 19-21 and with registration officially closed on Monday, June 24, it has broken a record for the total amount of competitors at an Evo event. Last year, Evo brought in a total of 9,221 unique competitors between the games in the main lineup. This year it was announced there are a total of 10,224 players who entered in at least one of the featured games.

In total, there are 16,231 total bracket entries among the 10K players who entered and this has not only broken an Evo record but an Esports record. This marks the first time a video game tournament has reached over 10,000 unique competitors.

Evo 2024 will feature Street Fighter 6, Tekken 8, Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising, Under Night In-Birth II Sys: Celes, Mortal Kombat 1, Guilty Gear Strive, The King of Fighters XV, and Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike. This record was broken even without games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Melee so who knows how many competitors would’ve attended Evo if even more games were featured.

Winning a tournament at Evo this year will never feel more accomplished compared to the past.
