If traditional sporting events can be supported with branded attire, why not eSports? In a collaborative deal with Capcom, Teespring will produce clothing
celebrating the Capcom Pro Tour, with t-shirt, hoodie and tanktop designs already up for reservation
. An unspecified portion of the line's proceeds will feed into the $50,000 prize pool for the top three competitors at the 2014 Capcom Cup Finals.
This year's Capcom Pro Tour is an 11-stop series that includes EVO 2014 and the Taito Arcade Nationals in its global roster of tournaments. Several more events are left in the 2014 Tour following this weekend's VSFighting 4 event in Birmingham, UK, with December's Capcom Cup Finals wrapping the season in San Francisco.
