Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series Sydney 2017: The 175th YCS!

Attention Duelists!

Last month we announced the first Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series (YCS) event of 2017, to be held in Sydney, Australia. Today, we are delighted to announce that this will be the 175th such running of an event, and we’ll be adding a few extra features to the event to make it that bit more special! 





Token Booth

Ever wanted to have you and your friends immortalised on a Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG card? Now’s your chance! For the very first time, we will be bringing our Token Booth setup to Australia, where Duelists can strike their best poses and take home custom Token cards!


Live Streaming

In another first for Australia, we’ll be streaming the event live on Twitch.tv! If you’ve been following our European events for the past few years you’ll know that the live streams have grown to become one of our standout features; now you can follow the 175th as it happens, from anywhere in the world!


2017 WCQ: Mega-Regional

The 2017 Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG World Championship is coming, but if you wish to compete in this tournament you’ll need to earn your invite at a 2017 WCQ: Continental Championship! In order to earn a seat at that however you will need to succeed in a WCQ: Regional Qualifier, and to kick off 2017 in style we will be running a “Mega Regional” at the 175th YCS!

Here’s how it differs from a normal WCQ: Regional Qualifier:

  • Entry limited to 128 players.
  • Top 8 Duelists win a 2017 WCQ: Regional Qualifier Game Mat
  • Top 4 Duelists win a 2017 WCQ: Regional Qualifier Deck Box
  • The winner receives a Super Rare Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series Prize Card*!


YCS Sydney 2017 Participation Game Mat

A special YCS requires a special Game Mat for all players to obtain, and for this unique occasion we’re Summoning the Dark Magician! For this Game Mat Dark Magician will appear as he does in Structure Deck: Yugi Muto, ready to take down any opponents that stand between you and victory!




I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s going to be an event to remember! Event information and updates for YCS Sydney 2017 can be found here, we hope to see you there in January!


*This will be a YCS Prize Card from a previous year (ie: not Number 93: Utopia Kaiser).
