World Championship Qualifiers – Nationals is your chance to be crowned the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME National Champion!  Duelists within each eligible Latin American country compete to become their nation's Champion and also compete to represent their nation at the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG 2019 World Championship Qualifiers!  Top finishers from the WCQ – Nationals will be invited to either the Central or South American WCQ, based on their country of residence.

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

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 will have the opportunity to become the 2019 Champion of that Nation.  If you have yet to earn an invite, the entry fee is the equivalent of $15.00 USD, and you will receive the equivalent inbooster packs from our latest release.  You must be a resident of that country in order to participate in the WCQ – National, if one is being held in your country.  If your country does not have 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 2019 Central American (CA) or South American (SA) WCQ. 2019 WCQ - Nationals will take place throughout Latin America during the dates of May 4th – May 26th.

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 2020 by participating this year! In order to reach a higher classification, your WCQ – National must have a minimum of the following attendance:

Group A – 301 players
Group B – 151 players
Group C – 65 players

Congratulations to the following countries that moved up to a higher group this year!

Trinidad & Tobago is now in Group A

In addition to all the great prizes that will be awarded, we are happy to announce that for 2019, all Nationals will have an exclusive design for the Top Cut Game Mat awarded to the best players of each country! In addition to the Top Cut Game Mat, all Group A National participants will receive a WCQ – National mousepad with the same design and players who pre-register and turn in their valid Deck List on Friday of their event will receive one of the Yu-Gi-Oh! branded Millennium Dice!

*All participation and pre-registration prizes will be given while supplies last.

 

But that's not all – the top-ranked finishers of each National will earn valuable World Qualifying Points that may earn them a spot in the 2019 Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME World Championship in Germany.
