United Kingdom 2020

How is the Catan National Championship run in the United Kingdom?

Our United Kingdom tournament consists of local qualifying tournaments that take place year-round. The winners of each of the tournaments win a seat at the Catan United Kingdom National Championship, which is held in May at the U.K. Games Expo in Birmingham. Players will face off against all other winners of the Qualifier tournaments to become the year’s Catan United Kingdom Champion.

Every two years the Champions are sent to the Catan World Championship tournament. The next Catan World Championship will be located in Malta, taking place in November 2021. The United Kingdom champion will also compete in the European tournament, taking place in the off-years from the World Championship.
