|X-Wing | Published 16 January 2014|
Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the 2014 Regional Championship Season for X-Wing™. Regional Championship applications are now prepped and ready to go to lightspeed!
Retailers are invited to apply now for this year’s regional season, running from May 1st through July 31st.
Regional Championships are premier tournaments sanctioned by Fantasy Flight Games and our international partners and serve as a big step toward our annual World Championships in November.
If you are a United States retailer or tournament organizer interested in hosting a 2014 Regional Championship event, fill out our online application form before February 5th 23:59 CST (Central Standard Time) to be considered.
If you are a retailer outside of the United States, please contact your distributor to apply to host a Regional Championship or ask questions. International applications must be submitted before February 5th 23:59 CST (Central Standard Time) to be considered.
The Expansion of Organized Play
With Store Championships giving each store a chance to host a premier tournament and the winner of those tournaments being granted a first-round bye at a Regional Championship, Regional Championships can now take their true place within the Organized Play structure, as a gateway to National Championships.
The number of Regional Championships in each country will vary depending on population. In the United States, each region will host no more than two X-Wing Regional Championships (see map below), with each event attracting the highest level of competition. Whether you are an elite veteran with harrowing battle stories or a new recruit looking to go toe-to-toe with the likes of Wedge Antilles and Soontir Fel, Regional Championships are where some of the fiercest dogfights will take place.
Regional Championship Prizes
A bye is not the only prize on the line at X-Wing Regional Championships. Each Regional Championship kit comes with exclusive prizes. Each kit this year has gotten bigger, with prizes for up to 64 players.
Apply today by completing the United States online application form for the chance to host some of the most resilient and inventive pilots in your area.
International retailers should complete the international form to apply. Don’t wait! Apply before February 5th 23:59 CST (Central Standard Time), or you will be left drifting in vacuum!
