As we inch closer to the climax of the BSF2016, let’s also take a look at the upcoming Bushiroad World Championship 2016!

Similar to previous years, Bushiroad World Championship 2016 will consist of 3 parts: Regional Qualifiers, Continental Championships, and World Finals. The Regional Qualifiers will run from August 2016 till November 2016, with qualifiers across Europe, Asia-Oceania, North America and Latin America!

We will be sharing more details about the Bushiroad World Championship in June so keep your eyes peeled. One more great thing to note is that we will be holding a 2016 CARDFIGHT!! VANGUARD UK STORE CHAMPIONSHIP CIRCUIT event in the United Kingdom!

If you are residing in the United Kingdom, you may take part in the special tournaments at the participating stores from May till July! The champion from each store’s Championship Circuit tournament will be able to join the Bushiroad World Championship United Kingdom Qualifier at the Strategy Gaming Convention in Telford, with 2 automatic byes for the first 2 elimination rounds!

Curently, we have 44 participating stores across the United Kingdom! The first few tournaments start next Saturday, May 21, so do check out the list here and mark the dates on your calendar!

Last but not least, for players from the rest of the world, this is what you are looking for. We have received a number of requests from you, especially after the announcement of 16 units, that you wish to have a larger deck holder to store your favorite deck, which now contains more cards. In the World Championship 2016, we will be giving out vertical deck holders to tournament participants for the first time!

The foldable deck case will be more rigid as well, with a dimension of 7cm x 6cm x 9.8cm (2.8in x 2.4in x 3.9in).

We will gradually reveal more information on the Bushiroad World Championship in future. Do stay tuned to our official channels for updates!
