As shared in our 2020 Magic esports announcement, Grand Prix and the new Players Tour events are two steps on the path to qualifying for the Magic World Championship. With Grand Prix tournaments at all 42 MagicFest events scheduled around the world, 2020 can be your year to join professional Magic.

Open to anyone who registers, Grand Prix award invitations to the Players Tour—and the winner is invited directly to the Players Tour Finals as well.

Visit the CFB Events website for more MagicFest details.

Players Tour events are the next step on the path to the Magic World Championship. While Grand Prix are an exciting way to qualify, they aren’t the only route to competing on the Players Tour:

  • All players from the previous Players Tour Finals (details on how top finishers from tabletop Mythic Championships in 2019 will qualify for the Players Tour will be announced prior to Mythic Championship VII)
  • Top finishers by record from the previous Players Tour
  • All MPL players
  • All Rivals players
  • Players who finish in the Top 8 or with at least 39 match points at individual Grand Prix
  • Top 4 teams and all other teams with at least 36 match points at team Grand Prix
  • Last Chance Qualifier winners held the day before Players Tour events
  • WPN Qualifiers
  • Players Tour Qualifiers
  • Premier Series events
  • MTGO Qualifiers
  • Hall of Fame status
  • Discretionary invitations

Prizes and the number of invites for the Players Tour events will vary by region.

  • Players Tour Americas: approximately 500 players; $250,000 prize pool
  • Players Tour Europe: approximately 400 players; $200,000 prize pool
  • Players Tour Asia-Pacific: approximately 250 players; $150,000 prize pool

Of course, doing well at a Players Tour event can earn you an invitation to the global Players Tour Finals for that series, and an opportunity to take home your part of the $250,000 prize pool. Here's how you can qualify for each Players Tour Finals:

  • Top finishers from Players Tour events (based on record)
  • Top finishers from previous Players Tour Finals
  • All 24 MPL players
  • Each Grand Prix winner in a qualifying season

Players Tour and Players Tour Finals events will take place alongside MagicFest events as well, providing you more opportunities to play and compete with the best in the world.
