An Arena Championship is a digital Magic: The Gathering tournament played on MTG Arena, as part of the greater Premier Play system. Arena Championships were introduced in the 2022–23 Pro Tour Season, replacing the Set Championships.[1][2]

Arena Championships mark the pinnacle of competition within MTG Arena. They happen three times per year, just like the new Pro Tour that was introduced in the same year.

Each Championship features 32 top players, determined by four months' worth of competitive ladder and event play on MTG Arena. They compete for a $200,000 prize pool. Each of the three winners and three runners-up of Arena Championships will also earn a seat at the World Championship.


There will be four monthly Qualifier Weekends feeding each Arena Championship. The Qualifier Weekend itself consists of two days of Best-of-Three matches in a shared format.
