2020 World Qualifying Points

September 2019
to June 2020

The world’s greatest Duelists will convene at the 2020 Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME World Championship to determine who is the strongest of them all, and you could be one of them!


What are World Qualifying Points?

The World Qualifying Point system allows Duelists to earn ranking points by competing in WCQ: Regional, WCQ: National and WCQ: Continental level tournaments throughout the year. Duelists can also earn points by competing in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series. These points are tallied over the course of the year with the highest ranked Duelists getting one step closer to this year’s World Championship.


How does the system work?

Duelists earn points by reaching high-ranking positions in the tournament types mentioned above. Certain events will offer more points than others, usually those with a higher number of Duelists competing overall. Please see our FAQ for full details.

Duelists can only earn points in the region they are a resident in. For example, if a European Duelist attends an American tournament they will not earn World Qualifying Points for that event; likewise should an American Duelist compete at a European tournament.
