Magic: The Gathering’s Largest Tournament Changes Platform

MTG World Championship will be a different platform for the first time ever!

For the first time in its 26-year history, Magic: The Gathering’s largest tournament, the World Championship, is changing from a table-top event to digital.

Thanks to the popularity and convenience of MTG Arena, the 16 elite players will set aside the cardboard and compete for their share of $1M in prizes using mouse and keyboard.

With a first-place prize of $300,000, World Championship XXVI is officially the largest individual prize pool in Magic history.

Fans can pick their champion now and tune in on Twitch.tv/magic in February of next year to watch all Magic: The Gathering action live from Honolulu, Hawaii.
