2024 01/when if banner desktop 3

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. Due to the number countries within the region, there are still some differences between the North American and European events. We are hoping North American players will look forward to what we have planned for this year!

In line with our announcement from last year, we will continue to extend an invitation to the winner of the North American Championship to the following year’s event. This year, we’d like to additionally invite our top three North American players from the 2023 World Championship.

As such, this year’s invited players are:

2023 North American Champion - Ryan Chen
