The Air Force is recruiting Airmen – active duty and Reserve (on orders) – now through May 17 for the 2020 Air Force Esports team for the 2020 Evolution Championship Series, in Las Vegas, July 21 – Aug. 2.
EVO 2020 is an annual fighting game tournament. This year’s championship games include: Street Fighter V: Champion Edition, Tekken 7, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Dragonball FighterZ and Soulcalibur VI.
Selected Airmen will attend a virtual trial and selection camp May 26–June 5, and a training camp July 20–29.
Applications must be submitted via the sports application tracking system. APPTRAC replaced the Air Force Form 303 request for specialized sports training for all-Air Force sports and Headquarters Air Command programs.
The APPTRAC application process requires commanders, supervisors and athletes to create an account to be able to complete submission and approval. Training slides and instructions are posted in the Air Force Services Center Portal at the Fitness and Sports “What's New” webpage.
