Canada 2019

What Is The Catan National Championship?

The Catan National Championship is a year-long season of local/regional qualifiers, which concludes with one player from each country each season earning a spot at the Catan World Championship.

The winners of each local/regional qualifier tournament will earn a guaranteed seat at the Catan Canada Championship for  that season.

Players will face off against all other winners of the qualifier tournaments to become that season’s Catan Canada Champion. Every two years, the Canadian Champions are sent to the Catan World Championship tournament. The 2020 Catan World Championship will be held in Malta.
