Want to offer your players the biggest, highest-energy WPN events possible? Look no further than the WPN Premium Tournament program!
Only Advanced-level WPN stores with the strongest support can offer their players a WPN Premium Tournament. You can run your Premium Tournament with any rated format at any time of the year. And with a special Premium Tournament link on our Event Locator, the WPN will make sure that players see your event.
You can also have WPN Premium Qualifiers that lead up to your Premium Tournament. These feed the Premium Tournaments with invitations or byes. The stores that host your Qualifiers do not need to be Advanced level, but they do need to be WPN store locations. This lets you set up a whole series of events leading up to your WPN Premium Tournament.
If your store is one of our Advanced-level WPN locations, then you too can get access to the large festival events that players crave. Talk to your WPN representative today about setting up your WPN Premium Tournament and let us help you get your game going!
