Event |   July 13, 2020


In November, 2021 the best Catan players from all over the world will gather in Valleta, Malta, to crown the next World Champion. More than 60 participants from around 40 countries are expected.

In addition to defending champion Quetzal Hernandez from Mexico, European and Americas continental champions as well as National champions from participating countries will participate. A maximum of two players per country can participate in the tournament. In total, about 60 representatives from around 40 nations – including from distant countries such as Japan, Australia, Malaysia and Peru – are expected in Valleta.

The World Championship was originally planned for November 2020, but was postponed one year due to the COVID-19 crisis.

The CATAN World Championship takes place every two years and is hosted alternately by KOSMOS Verlag and CATAN Studio. This year, CATAN Studio chose Malta, and the lovely Grand Hotel Excelsior Malta. We look forward to greeting our champions for a weekend of intense competition and fun!
