Diamond Dust Tournament at GFG 2024

March 12th, 2024

The same Ann Arbor community that previously organized Bahamut and Phoenix Down are back again! Intro: Diamond Dust. This is your opportunity to put your Smash, Tekken 8, and Street Fighter 6 skills to the test and, potentially, walk away with some extra cash in your pocket.

Register on Start.gg to join the brackets. For more details, join the group’s Discord or follow them on X (Twitter).

The tournaments will be held within the George Gervin GameAbove Center, the same as last year, starting at 11 am on Saturday, April 6.
