Magic: The Gathering Arena will run for two seasons this year, each season sporting 4 weekends of combat leading into a Champions Stage to determine who stands atop the peak of national glory.

The Top 2 players in the Single Elimination on the Sunday will qualify directly for the Champions Stage. If a player has already qualified for the Champions Stage, their place will be passed down to the next eligible player. TCG prizes are up for grabs at each round and already qualified players are encouraged to play in multiple events! At the conclusion of the 4 weekends of combat, the 8 contestants who have made it through will compete for the lion’s share of $2,500AUD in cash prizes & plenty of TCG Card Packs.
