What is The Sunday Open?
Since the suspension of all organized play activities for the Pokémon TCG in March 2020, we have been running a tournament every Sunday on PTCGO. We are hoping to provide some regular structure around which members of the community can gather and continue to enjoy playing Pokémon, should they wish to do so.
How do I Register?
Tournaments run every week on Sunday from 4PM UTC with Registration closing 1 hour prior. Use World Time Buddy to find your local time. Registration is open to players of all ages and location. Please hop onto the Discord server for more info - Come and join us!Join the Discord
What are the rules?
We try to keep it as relaxed as possible, only introducing rules when a situation arises that makes it necessary. Our current rules are below, but these can change at any point; live and up-to-date rules are kept on the Discord Server.

What's all this about double prizing?
We are very fortunate to have had many community members donate online packs to the prize pool, which allows us to give out 2 online packs in prizing for every 1 we receive in entry fees.
This is only possible due to the generous donations we receive
