Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the 2014 Regional Championship Season for Star Wars™: The Card Game. Regional Championship applications are now fully loaded and operational!
Retailers are invited to apply now for this year’s regional season, running from May 1st through July 31st.
Regional Championships are premier tournaments sanctioned by Fantasy Flight Games and our international partners and serve as a big step toward our annual World Championships in November.
If you are a United States retailer or tournament organizer interested in hosting a 2014 Regional Championship event, fill out our online application form before February 5th 23:59 CST (Central Standard Time) to be considered.
If you are a retailer outside of the United States, please contact your distributor to apply to host a Regional Championship or ask questions. International applications must be submitted before February 5th 23:59 CST (Central Standard Time) to be considered.
The Expansion of Organized Play
With Store Championships giving each store a chance to host a premier tournament and the winner of those tournaments being granted a first-round bye at a Regional Championship, Regional Championships can now take their true place within the Organized Play structure, as a gateway to National Championships.
The number of Regional Championships in each country will vary depending on population. In the United States, each region will host up to two Star Wars: The Card Game Regional Championships (see map below), with each event attracting the highest level of competition. Whether you are a Sith Lord looking to rule the galaxy or a young Padawan wanting to prove you have what it takes to be a Jedi Knight, Regional Championships are where some of the fiercest battles between the light side and the dark side will occur.
Regional Championship Prizes
A bye is not the only bounty that can be found at Star Wars: The Card Game Regional Championships. Each Regional Championship kit this year has gotten bigger and comes with exclusive prizes for up to 64 players.
Apply today by completing the United States online application form for the chance to host some of the best and brightest from both sides of the Force. International retailers should complete the international form to apply. Be careful not to wait too long! After February 5th 23:59 CST (Central Standard Time), applications will close and the fate of the galaxy will be out of your hands.
Stay tuned this week for additional Regional Championship announcements!
