What is the Cineplex WorldGaming Canadian Championship?

Cineplex and your team at WorldGaming have come together to bring you the first tournament series of its kind in Canada.

This year-long program features your favorite titles in both head-to-head and team play style tournaments. Each tournament connects the online gaming community to live competitive events at Cineplex locations across Canada.

Here’s how each tournament works:

  • Canadian gamers will register for a free account at WorldGaming (if they don’t already have one).
  • Players then register for the Qualifiers to compete either Online or In-theatre at one of 24 Cineplex locations across Canada.
  • Players or teams who qualify in both the Online and In-theatre qualifiers will move on to the Online Playoffs.
  • The winning teams from the Online Playoffs are flown to Toronto to compete in the National Finals at Scotiabank Theatre Toronto for the grand cash prize.

Only one winner can be crowned the Canadian Champion! Good luck to all of our players.

This team-based competitive tournament challenged highly skilled teams to communicate and execute their choreographed tactics. Some have been playing together for year, and some just formed for the tournament.

The Online Qualifiers began in June and teams were slowly eliminated until only 8 were left at the finals in Toronto.

Canadian Championship Street Fighter V Edition

The second Canadian Championship, Street Fighter V, had us KO’d for sure.

Congratulations to our second Champion, Chi-Rithy, who fought a hard battle against some extremely talented competitors to take home the trophy (and the cash)!




The Street Fighter V Online Qualifiers began in March, and after weeks of hadouken’s and thousands of competitiors, it got narrowed down to just the Regional Finalists.

Live in-theatre battles were fought across Canada to be one of the 32 gamers who were flown to Toronto to comepete in the finals at Scotiabank Theatre for the $10,000 grand prize.

The FGC crowd was one of the most enthusiastic we’ve seen in any of our tournaments, so huge thank you to everyone who came out to support these fighters! Especially our cosplay crew who joined us as Laura and Ken, among others.
