Yu-Gi-Oh! Day 2018 is taking place on July 14 – 15, 2018!
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 America. The event is scheduled to occur on either Saturday, July 14th, 2018, or Sunday, July 15th, 2018.
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.
