World Championship Qualifiers – Nationals are prestigious Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME tournaments in which players within Latin America will compete to represent their country at the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG 2013 World Championship Qualifiers – Continentals.  Top finishers from the WCQ – Nationals will be invited to either the Central or South American WCQ – Continental, based on their location.

Here you’ll find information about participating in the exciting events!  Information will be added as it becomes available, so please check back frequently for the latest news.

All WCQ – Nationals will be Open Nationals, meaning that even if you have not yet earned an invite, you can still participate.  If you have already earned an invite, the entry fee is waived, you will not receive the participation packs but you have the opportunity to become your Nation’s 2013 Champion.  If you have yet to earn an invite, the entry fee is the equivalent of $20.00 USD, and you will receive the equivalent in LTGY booster packs.  .  You must be a resident of that country in order to participate in the WCQ – National.  If your country is not holding a WCQ – National, you are welcome to participate in any of the Nationals in Latin America or the Regional Qualifiers in the United States in order to earn your invite to the 2013 WCQ – Continentals of your region.

This year the WCQ – Nationals have been broken down into three groups (A, B and C); each group has its own prize pool.  Groups are assigned based on the previous year’s WCQ – National attendance.  Help make your country obtain a Group A classification in 2014 by participating this year!
