Largest TCG Tournament In History

January 9th, 2010

The maximum seated capacity for the main hall here at the Los Angeles Convention Center is 1464 people, a number that we have shattered here today! A second hall is being opened elsewhere in the Convention Center to accommodate the hordes of remaining competitors for today’s SHONEN JUMP Championship main event, and the energy here is nothing short of electric!

We currently have no less than 1625 attendees, an unprecedented number that dwarfs previous events like the 2009 U.S. National Championship and the 50th SHONEN JUMP Championship in Costa Mesa. This isn’t just the biggest Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME tournament of all time – each and every Duelist here today is making history, as they compete in the biggest single TCG tournament ever held! Though a handful of European events (including the Yu-Gi-Oh! event at Amsterdam’s airport a few years ago) have seen four-digit attendance numbers before, the largest of those were divided into several different tournaments. Not so here, as this is one singular competition where any two Duelists could go head-to-head. No divisions, no borders – no one has ever done it before!

To everyone here, and everyone joining us at home – welcome to the biggest TCG tournament ever, SHONEN JUMP Championship Los Angeles!
