Today SuperKombat announced their event schedule for 2013, which features six SuperKombat World Grand Prix events, six SuperKombat New Heroes qualification events as well as the World Tryout series.
Like last year, four of the SuperKombat World Grand Prix events will feature qualifying tournaments, with the winners going to the Final Elimination. Then the winners from the Final Elimination will fight in the final tournament at the SuperKombat World Grand Prix Final.
This year SuperKombat has brought in a new system to get fighters for it's tournaments with SuperKombat New Heroes, a series of six qualification events. The winners of the SuperKombat New Heroes tournaments will all qualify for spots in one of the four SuperKombat World Grand Prix qualifying tournaments. So far, one SuperKombat New Heroes event has already taken place this past weekend on February 23 in Opatija, Croatia, where Muamer Tufekcic, Ante Verunica, Uros Velicevic and Dino Belosevic won qualifying super fights at the event, which was put on in part with Opatija Fight Night. The next SuperKombat New Heroes event is scheduled for March 23 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
"As you know, in january we started the World Tryouts series because I’m sure that may be heroes undiscovered. Until now we had tryouts events in Greece, Germany and Great Britain and the future sounds good. Superkombat will became a complete fighting championship with tryouts events and after that with qualification events for the World Grand Prix series. The global format will be the same as in football. You must promote from a division to another. To be in the World Grand Prix series, you must get your ticket from the World Tryouts series and New Heroes series,” said Eduard Irimia.
