Magic: the Gathering Grand Prix

Introduction to Magic Grand Prix

Grand Prix are the biggest open events run around the world, attracting hundreds of Magic players to battle for prizes and glory in a festival atmosphere. They're high-energy and often feature the best players in the world. But you don't have to be a pro to play—Grand Prix are open to players of all ages and no invitation is necessary. Playing a good game is all that matters, and with high Planeswalker Points multipliers on the main event and cash prizes all the way down to at least 64th place, one thing is certain: a Grand Prix is sure-fire great time.

Each participant gets an alternate-art promotional card (while supplies last). Pro Tour invitations are awarded to top finishers based on the size of the Grand Prix (see each event for details). Alongside the main event, a full side events schedule starts Friday and runs all weekend offering a wide range of smaller-scale tournaments.

Players with high Competitive/Seasonal Award Planeswalker Points totals or Pro Players Club levels can earn byes for Grand Prix tournaments. You can also earn byes at Grand Prix Trials.

You also earn Planeswalker Points for playing in a Grand Prix. These points can earn you byes at future Grand Prix. For more information on Planeswalker Points, visit this page.
