We are happy to announce the venue for this year’s Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship: The ninth of its kind, the 2011 event will return to Europe, with Amsterdam’s Westergasfabriek venue playing host to duelists from all over the globe on the weekend of August 13-14th.

At this unique location, 26 of the world’s best TCG duelists will gather to pit their skills against each other in a knock-out competition spanning eight rounds. Similarly, the best 12 players of KONAMI’s Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s World Championship 2011: Over The Nexus will also convene for an equally hot competition.

Of the 26 Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME players taking part, four will be from Europe, and will be determined by their participation in the European Championship in Madrid on July 16th-17th. The winning four will then have their travel and accommodation paid for, as they head to Amsterdam to face opponents from America, Asia and Oceania.

Of course, this exciting two-day event is not only for these 26 players: It will also offer various Public Events and other activities open for all Yu-Gi-Oh!-fans – thus everyone is invited to come and visit and this way be part of this year’s World Championship!
