Kung Fu Cup (中文:功夫杯), shortened as KFC, is a weekly online tournament held on the Taiwan/Korean server. Each week, a top Chinese progamer and a top Korean progamer are invited to compete for the prize of $100. The first three sessions were sponsored by SCBoy's taobao store, which sells PC gaming peripherals (headsets, mice, keyboards, etc.). Kung Fu Cup then became sponsored by NeoTV.

Trivia[edit]

  • KFC initially started out as series of grudge matches between members of SC2Boy (星际老男孩). It was referred to as "IQ-Cup" (智商杯). After IQ-Cup developed into a weekly show match between top Chinese and Korean players, SC2Boy changed the name to Kung Fu Cup (功夫杯).[Citation needed]
