Hey everyone, after hearing last week about the details of Europe's upcoming 2019 FFTCG season, I could not wait for news of what North America had in store. We had to wait for RB to come back from the Final Fantasy Brave Exvius Fan Festival, but we have some news on what our 2019 season will look like! I have paraphrased all the information below, but it is all from RB's original post on Facebook which you can find here.
I hope we get even more details soon, such as specific dates and locations for Crystal Cups and more. I am particularly excited for the Fan Festival, hopefully it all works out with my schedule!
FFTCG Fan Fest in LA, California on February 9th.

However from the perspective of growing the game, this could be a very good opportunity for people to come play in tourments and win some cool prizes. Hopefully it will serve to grow local scenes and draw new players into the game. Miles Greb put it best in his Facebook post on the FFTCG NA Page. I have quoted a portion of his thoughts below:
“FFTCG grows only so well as the WHOLE fan base grows. These kind of events my not be super appealing to everyone, but they will me fun for a lot of people. They will help bring more people to local game stores, and coming out on weekends to play. And that I think makes them a great idea.”
Competitive Season April-November (Worlds)
No Tournaments at Conventions this Year (for the most part)
North American Championship
There will be a total of 12 seats at the World Championship for North America:
RB has stated that a full list of dates for every 2019 FFTCG event will be available as soon as possible.
