Grand Prix Oakland

ChannelFireball Proudly Presents...

Grand Prix Oakland

A short trip across the bay from San Francisco and the hometown of Pro Tour Champion Luis Scott-Vargas, Oakland plays host to its third Grand Prix. The weekend will feature special events for every kind of Magic competitor—from the casual player to the top-level professional. In addition, three Magic artists and a dozen of the largest vendors from around the country will be on hand to fill your every Magic need!

Never experienced a Grand Prix? No problem!

There will be a free instructional seminar Friday afternoon with Team ChannelFireball members LSV and Ben Stark to prepare you for the main event. Team members will also be gunslinging M14 Sealed Deck throughout the weekend to help you hone your skills. All this and more will make Oakland the perfect event to experience your first Grand Prix!

The Magic: The Gathering Grand Prix tournament series is a great reason to step up your game, catch up with old friends, meet some new ones, and play Magic. Grand Prix tournaments are world-wide open events that allow all Magic players to participate and experience the thrill of a large-scale competition. In addition to cash prizes, a high Planeswalker Points multiplier, and exclusive foil promo cards for participants, the Grand Prix features a host of other activities, including side events and artist signings. Find out more about the Grand Prix Oakland tournament schedule here.
