To the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME community –

As we monitor developments related to the COVID-19 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, we are making the following changes to our 2020 events schedule:

Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series (YCS)

  • YCS Minneapolis (originally Aug 22-23) is canceled.

WCQ – National Championships

  • All nationals (originally postponed) are canceled.

Organized Play and Promotional Events

  • All OP and events postponed indefinitely, until further notice.

We are aware of the steps that communities across the nation have taken to gradually reopen; however, with the increase in daily COVID-19 cases occurring around the U.S., we want to prioritize the safety and well-being of our communities. As circumstances evolve throughout the coming weeks, we will periodically provide future updates relating to the status of local Organized Play 2020 events and promotional 2020 events, as we review government health authority guidelines.
