To the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME community –
As we monitor developments related to this pandemic, we continue to take seriously the guidelines and recommendations put forth by government health authorities and experts. In keeping with those guidelines and in recognizing our own responsibility to prioritize the health and safety of our entire Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG community, it is with heavy hearts that we announce the following changes to our 2020 events schedule:
Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship (WCS)
World Championship Qualifiers (WCQ)
WCQ – National Championships
Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series (YCS)
We realize the WCQ – National Championships and WCQs are not just the qualifying events for the World Championships, but also an important chance to crown the best in Yu-Gi-Oh! in each country, as well as on each continent. To ensure this opportunity is still afforded to Duelists around the world, we're excited to continue to host National Championships in Latin America and Europe, State Championships in Oceania, as well as host Championships in Central, South and North America along with Europe and Oceania later this year. We will share further details regarding these tournaments in the future.
As circumstances evolve, we will continue to communicate with you often and will provide any new information, including updates on the status of postponed and future events, as it becomes available. Please continue to visit our official Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG website and official social media channels on Twitter and Facebook for the latest news and updates:
We understand the disappointment many of our fans and Duelists may feel as a result of these changes to our event schedule but look forward to sharing news of our upcoming events with you all soon. While we share in your disappointment, we are confident this decision is in the best interest of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG community and will preserve the integrity of the events that allow us to come together in the spirit of friendship and friendly competition. Thank you for your continued support, patience and understanding as we work to keep our valued Duelists, partners and team members safe; we look forward to brighter days ahead for us all.
