United Kingdom 2022

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 late May or early June 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.

The 2020 and 2021 United Kingdom National Championships were cancelled due to COVID-19. All qualified players retain their qualified status and will have a seat at the next in-person United Kingdom National Championship, which will take place June 3-5, 2022.

Qualified players will receive email communication from Organized Play with instructions regarding their attendance at UKGE. This email will go out the week of March 7, 2022. If you have not received it by that time, contact Stephanie Newman, Organized Play Coordinator.

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 2022. The United Kingdom champion will also compete in the European Championship, taking place in the off-years from the World Championship.
