CATAN World Championship 2022 will be in Valleta, Malta

Event |   January 28, 2021


In November, 2022 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.

The World Championship was originally planned for November 2020, but was postponed due to the COVID-19 crisis. Normally, a maximum of two players per country can participate in the tournament. Countries that have been able to hold National Championships in the two years preceding this rescheduled event will be permitted to send additional champions. We look forward to hosting the largest World Championship to date in Valleta.

The CATAN World Championship takes place every two years and is hosted alternately by KOSMOS Verlag and CATAN Studio. For 2022, 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!
