Play the Game, See the World!
Qualifier tournaments are where the game really gets serious. The excitement level is high and the stakes are even higher. Players the world over converge with a common goal in mind -- an invitation to the Pro Tour, which could include an airplane ticket to the next Pro Tour location.
Pro Tour Qualifiers are one-day tournaments offering invitations to the next Pro Tour stop. Formats are varied at Pro Tour Qualifiers, with Constructed and Limited formats seeing action during different seasons. The format is roughly associated with the upcoming Pro Tour. There are also a limited number of Pro Tour Qualifier tournaments run on Magic Online.
If you enjoyed playing in a Pro Tour Qualifier, you should look into playing at the next Grand Prix in your area, along with World Magic Cup Qualifier tournaments to earn a trip to the World Magic Cup.
Multiple Pro Tour Qualifier tournaments are run every weekend during the season, so check your country's schedule for the next tournament in your area. Pro Tour Qualifiers are held at event halls and large retail stores. The attendance can be up to 100 or more players at each location. Pro Tour Qualifiers are also held on Magic Online, scheduled throughout the season at times convenient for players around the world.
Invitations and airfare to the next Pro Tour are awarded to the top finishers, with the exact number of invitations determined by tournament location. Some locations offer cash prizes instead of airfare. Additional prizes may be awarded at the discretion of the event organizers.
