This Week in Magic


ChannelFireball Events Exclusive Global Partnership for Grand Prix

“As our goal is to increase the consistency and quality of the player experience at Grand Prix events globally, last year we invited various companies to submit proposals on delivering high-quality Grand Prix in various regions across the world.

The outcome of this process is that, starting in 2018, ChannelFireball Events (CFBE) will be Wizards of the Coast’s exclusive global partner to run all Grand Prix. CFBE is a company newly formed by ChannelFireball and Siteline Productions. ChannelFireball probably doesn’t need much of an introduction—they have provided Magic content, hosted successful Grand Prix, and brought their own brand of event coverage to Magic streaming.”
