Intel is offering an open invitation to all Rocket League and Street Fighter V players to compete in its brand new tournament in Japan ahead of the Tokyo 2020 summer Olympic games. With perhaps an eye to eventually get esports on the Olympic agenda, Intel is set to host a series of competitive gaming events leading up to World Open in 2020 – with an alluring prize pool set at $250,000.

Everyone has the chance to enter the competition with online qualifiers beginning early 2020 leading up to the big event in Tokyo. The open invite and large prize pool will surely attract some of the biggest teams and players in esports, so you’ll need to bring your a-game if you’re hoping for a chance at taking home the gold.

The road to $250,000 differs slightly between Street Fighter V and Rocket League, but the best teams from either games’ qualifiers will end up duking it out for the prize pool at the Zepp DiverCity venue in Tokyo running in the few days prior to the Olympic Opening Ceremony.
