ANZ Super Series Your Path To The Pro Tour

Cycle Seven ‒ Store Qualifiers (April 20th to July 21st)

The ANZ Magic Super Series is a program for Magic The Gathering for the Australian and New Zealand region. Each year is a Season made up of three Cycles. Each Cycle will have Store Qualifiers that any WPN Location in Australia or New Zealand can register and be a part of. Players can enter as many Store Qualifiers as they wish and the winner of each Store Qualifier will then qualify for that Cycles Super Series Final. Top Finishers in each Super Series Final will win places at the Pro Tour and cash prizes.

WPN Locations within Australia and New Zealand can register to be part of the Series.

Each registered store will be able to run up to Two Store Qualifiers, which must be run within the date window provided. Each event will have its own entry fee and prizes which will be set by each store. The winner of this event will qualify for the Super Series Final for that season.

WPN Premium Stores will be able to run up to Four Store Qualifiers within the date window and each event will qualify the winner and the runner up for the Super Series Final.

Players can play in as many Store Qualifiers as they want. Players can also continue to play in Store Qualifiers after they have already qualified and should they qualify again that qualification will pass down to the next ranked player in that event.
