Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series Returns after 2 years with in-person events

Konami on Tuesday announced that the events of its Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series (YCS) will return live next year, starting with an event January 15-16 at the Pasasdena Convention Center in Pasadena, California.

Konami will also be hosting a Long Distance Duel event for Latin American players on the same weekend, with details for the upcoming event.

The latest Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series took place in February 2020. Konami canceled the World Championship 2020 event scheduled for August 2020 (as well as other qualifying events) due to concerns about the new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Likewise, Konami canceled the scheduled 2021 World Championship event.
