Grand Prix Phoenix

ChannelFireball.com and Cascade Games are proud to present Grand Prix Phoenix!

Commonly known as the home of the Diamondbacks, Coyotes, Cardinals and Suns, Phoenix will play host to Rats, Merfolk, Elves and Gods as the Standard Grand Prix comes to town!

The weekend will feature special events for every kind of Magic enthusiast—from the casual player to the top-level professional. In addition, five Magic artists and a dozen of the largest vendors from around the world will be on hand to fill your every Magic need!

Located in the heart of the Arizona State Capital, the Phoenix Convention Center is only a five miles from the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. The surrounding downtown area offers a wide variety of restaurants and shops to further enhance your weekend.

Never experienced a Grand Prix? No problem!

There will be a free instructional seminar Friday afternoon with Team ChannelFireball members to prepare you for the main event. Team members will also be gunslinging throughout the weekend to help you hone your skills. All this and more will make Phoenix 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: the Gathering. Grand Prix tournaments are world-wide open events that allow all Magic: the Gathering 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.
