We're excited to share with you all the first details for FFTCG 2024 Organized Play in North America! 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, and prizing) are confirmed, so please keep an eye here and on social media where we will share updates and news!
This year we have done our best to align tournament and prizing structure between the North American and European competitions so players will have opportunities to compete for the same prizes across the season.
