We're excited to share with you all the first details for FFTCG 2024 Organized Play in Europe! Keep in mind much of what is presented here is preliminary information, and this page will be updated as more details (such as dates, ticket links etc…) are confirmed, so please keep an eye here and on social media where we will share updates and news!
Due to the differences in the regions served, the European structure will differ slightly from the North American structure. We have done our best to align rewards between the European and North American competitions so players will have opportunities to compete for the same prizes across the season.
