Magic: the Gathering in the UK
We regret to announce that we will not be running this event.
When we recently gained the status to allow us to run GPTs what we didn't want to do is to start trying to compete directly with other events and other organisers. This isn't good for the community, the pro play scene, or any organisers pockets.
With this date also being the day of a Nationals Qualifier and a PTQ we think the best thing to do is to pull out of running a GPT for Brussels. This will ensure the full support of the community toward both of these events especially the Nationals qualifier which is of course very important to the UK community and will also allow us to continue to bring other offers of great events in the future.
We have asked a fair number of players in various different locations and the feedback seems like this will be the best course of action.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused but hope to make up for it with our future GPTs , all with travel and accommodation. The first of which will be GPT Florence.
Thanks for your understanding
