What is eFight Pass?
The Fighting Game Community is one of the most diverse and inclusive communities in the Esports industry. Regardless of age, gender, or race, the love of fighting games and competition is what drove people all over the world to become a community. Unfortunately, not every player has the opportunity to travel and compete where most prestigious tournaments are located, United States of America.
The goal of this program is to give opportunities to players that show exceptional skill and are in difficult positions that render them unable to compete in the United States. With help from inside/outside our community for proper funding, these players will be able to acquire their visas and hopefully travel to at least one American tournament.

Are you a strong competitor, want to compete in the US, and need a visa? Let us help!
With ongoing support, we will be able to raise the number of players we help and potentially cover more than visa fees.
Players from EFP Program
Arslan Ash started playing Tekken at the age of 10, with Tekken 6 being his first competitive game. Four years late at the age of 14, he took his first national championship called "GMC 2010".
Fast forward to January 2019, he made his first public breakthrough by winning EVO Japan. For the first time ever, a Pakistani player won a major Tekken tournament, defeating the strongest players from countries such as Korea, Japan, and the United States.
Aside from his sponsorship with Vslash Esports, he also became an official Red Bull athlete in 2019!

After the launch of eFight Pass in early 2019, we were able to successfully attain visas for 4 players, El Tigre (Mexico), Zenith (Brazil), Anya (Mexico), and Arslan Ash (Pakistan).
With the help of Justin Wong's contribution and donations through this website/EFight Pass tournament in May, we were able to pay for the players' flights and accommodations.
Location: Las Vegas, NV
Although COVID set back eFight Pass, we were able to still continue pursuing visas for the community. From 2020-2023, we were able to get visas for at least a dozen players. Some of these players, Konqueror (Brazil), Queen Arrow (Kenya), Horus Paulin (Brazil), were able to make their first appearances in the United States at EVO 2023. Arslan Ash (Pakistan) was able to make a repeat appearance and take the Tekken 7 championship home, for a 4th time.
