Monthly In-Store Play Update, January 2021
As of January 13, 2021, the in-store play suspension in North America, LATAM, Europe, and Japan will remain in place and expand to Africa.
In addition to the extension in these regions, we've made the following changes to the in-store play suspension:
After closely monitoring the state of the pandemic, and above all considering the safety of the community, we've made the difficult decision to place in-store play under suspension in Africa.
The next update will come on February 10.
Remote play events remain available in Wizards Event Reporter and EventLink, but any live events scheduled will be automatically canceled and removed from the Store and Event Locator.
We recommend WPN members host remote events, whether via Magic Arena, Magic Online, or webcam. Visit our guide to running Arena tournaments through EventLink to get started.
We lifted restrictions around organizers taking admission fees for events run on Magic Arena and Magic Online. We have increased the maximum entry fee for both Magic Arena and Magic Online tournaments to $25.
Wizards will continue to monitor the situation and update WPN members on the second Wednesday of each month.
