About the Grand Prix

Grand Prix are the biggest open Magic events run around the world, attracting hundreds of players to battle for prizes and glory in a festival atmosphere. They’re high-energy and often feature the best players in the world, but you don’t have to be a pro to play. Grand Prix are open to competitors of all ages and no invitation is necessary. Playing a good game is all that matters, and with cash prizes and Pro Tour invitations up for grabs, one thing is certain: a Grand Prix is a sure-fire great time. Each participant receives an alternate-art Grand Prix promo card while supplies last!

Register on-site Friday, March 6, or preregister! There is no Saturday registration for Grand Prix Miami.
