Description[edit | edit source]

The 2020 World Championship was skipped, due to the Covid 19-crisis. Magic World Championship XXVII is tentatively planned for the summer of 2021 as an on-location event that represents the pinnacle of Magic Esports. But given the continued uncertainty around in-person events, these plans may need to adjust as the season ends and we will evaluate the feasibility of in-person events.[3]

The 2020–2021 season World Championship will have a prize pool of $1 million will feature the winners of each Players Tour Finals and the winner of each Mythic Invitational. Additional slots will be announced prior to the start of the 2020–21 season.
