Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s UK & Ireland Championship Finals Take Place This Weekend

If you’re a fan of the Super Smash Bros. competitive scene, or if you’re interested in seeing what it’s all about, you may well want to clear some space in your schedule this weekend to watch the UK & Ireland Smash Ultimate finals.

After months of practice and heated competition, the UK & Ireland representatives for the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate European Smash Ball Team Cup 2019 will be crowned at Insomnia64 this Saturday, 20th April. A top-four final will take place between the champions of the London, Edinburgh, Dublin, and Nintendo Players UK qualifier tournaments at 4pm BST, and the whole thing is set to be livestreamed on the Nintendo UK YouTube and the Nintendo UK Twitch channels.

The winners of the final will go on to compete at the European finals in Amsterdam on 4th – 5th May. The official ticket website has now opened if you want to sign up for tickets, but we expect these to disappear pretty quickly. If you’re not feeling up for a trip to Amsterdam, this event will also be livestreamed across official channels – more details will follow.

Here are the teams that will be taking part in that European final:
