Capcom announced today that it is restructuring its eSports and media licensing business units under a new entity called Capcom Media Ventures (CMV).
From here on out, Capcom Media Ventures will manage all of the company’s global eSports initiatives outside of Japan. This includes the Capcom Pro Tour (CPT) and Street Fighter League (SFL), plus Capcom’s entertainment licensing efforts.
Here’s a quote from Midori Yuasa, who was named CEO of Capcom Media Ventures:
“Los Angeles has become a major hub for esports production and it’s one of the global centers of Street Fighter fandom. Our presence in the city gives us intimate access to those resources and community thought leaders. In addition, there are obvious benefits for our media licensing team to be based so close to our Hollywood partners.”
Capcom Media Venture is currently producing its seventh season of the Capcom Pro Tour and also introduced a brand-new series called Street Fighter League: Pro-US 2019.
