This is a list of all Magic: The Gathering Pro Tour and Players Tour events (professional, invite-only tournaments featuring large cash prizes). Invitations are usually earned by winning a qualifier tournament. Other means of qualifying include, finishing high in a Grand Prix or in the previous PT, and being part of the MPL or Rivals League. The success of a professional player often is measured by his Top Finishes, a place in the Top 8 of a PT.

History[]

The first Pro Tour was held in New York City in 1996. The World Championships were considered part from the Pro Tour from 1996 to 2011, but were discontinued in 2012. When the they were reintroduced in 2013 they were changed to a smaller scale non-Pro Tour event. From 2019, Pro Tours were rebranded Mythic Championships, three of which per year are held with physical cards, three in Magic: The Gathering Arena. From 2020, they were again rebranded as Players Tour events, twelve of which are held each year: three series per year, each consisting of three regional events (Americas, Europe, and Asia–Pacific) which serve as qualifiers for a single finals event for that series. MTG Arena also offered Pro Tour-like events still called Mythic Invitationals. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, all future events were moved to MTG Arena, until further notice. Four Players Tour online tournaments would feed into Players Tour Finals tournament, which alongside other events fed into a Grand Finals online tournament. The following 2020-21 season focused on three split seasons around the set releases, where a number of qualifying tournaments fed a Set Championships tournament.

Note: Originally the Pro Tours were identified by their location. Beginning with the 2012 Pro Tour Season, Wizards of the Coast began naming them with the title of the expansion set released at the same time. In the 2018 the naming convention started to change rapidly and repeatedly, also prompted by a move to MTG Arena.
