Welcome from BIG MAGIC:

 

I am Hidetoshi Ito, event manager for BIG MAGIC, and I will be managing the staff at Grand Prix Yokohama 2019.

 

We all appreciate your help with GP Yokohama 2019 and we want to raise the bar for this Grand Prix, so please help BIGMAGIC and CFB Events to achieve this goal.

 

Our Main Goals are;

 

1. PROVIDE smooth tournament flow

Grand Prix are larger than ever in Japan

*About 2000- players enrolled in GPs 2018 season

 

Please keep in mind that almost all venues in Japan must close earlier than venues in other countries; therefore and in order to finish up the event as smooth as possible, please prepare for your role at the event ahead of time

(read the factsheet, look through the venue map, etc.)

 

2. CONNECT Japan and the World

There are many great GP attributes Worldwide and there are many exclusive to Japan. Our goal is to take the best attributes from both sides and make the whole Grand Prix experience even better.
