Yu-Gi-Oh! Day is a day for all to celebrate the Yu-Gi-Oh! brand, create excitement for our brand at our Official Tournament Stores (OTS), and to further distinguish OTS from non-OTS. Yu-Gi-Oh! Day is held simultaneously throughout North and South America. The event is scheduled to occur on either Saturday, January 28, 2017, or Sunday, January 29, 2017.
Duelists will be able to participate in a Sanctioned tournament at all participating Official Tournament Stores (OTS), with exclusive prizes only available at an OTS. Yu-Gi-Oh! Days are primarily events that require minimal staffing on behalf of the OTS and a high standard of sportsmanship from the players.
Only Konami OTS are permitted to host a Yu-Gi-Oh! Day event.
The Yu-Gi-Oh! Days will be held on either January 28, 2017, or Sunday, January 29, 2017 at select locations throughout the Americas. A list of locations and dates for the Yu-Gi-Oh! Day event can be found online at http://www.yugioh-card.com/en/events/ygoday/.
Please contact the OTS for exact tournament start time.
Due to safety and fire regulations, each Yu-Gi-Oh! Day has a seating capacity and it may vary from location to location. It is advised that you arrive early enough to register for the Yu-Gi-Oh! Day so that you can ensure a spot in the event. If you have any additional questions, please contact the OTS directly at the phone number that corresponds with the event in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Day Locator page.
The registration fee for the Yu-Gi-Oh! Day is $5.00 USD in the United States ($5.00 CND in Canada). All players entering the Yu-Gi-Oh! Day event must receive this amount in commensurate prizing. For example, it could be one (1) OTS Tournament Pack, or one (1) booster pack and one (1) Star Pack, etc. (Sales tax may not be charged on top of the entry fee for the Yu-Gi-Oh! Day. If a region requires sales tax to be charged on entry fees, then the current entry fees should be considered to already include the sales tax.)
