We’re bringing the Grand Prix circuit back to the UK in August, so join us for Grand Prix Birmingham! The main event features the Modern format, where Amonkhet and Hour of Devastation cards will be doing some work to change the format as we know it. If Modern isn’t your format of choice, you’ll want to check out our side events schedule, as we’ll be offering Limited, Standard, and Legacy side events (and Modern ones too!) as well as some more chaotic offerings. No matter how you choose to spend the weekend, you’ll want to be here for all three days, as you’ll need that time to visit all our vendor and artist booths, meet the Pro Players, check out the side events, and more. Preregister now to secure your spot!
Our Grand Prix events always feature exclusive Ultra PRO playmats with beautiful art, and Grand Prix Birmingham is no exception! The #GPBirm playmat features the art from Nimble Obstructionist by Shreya Shetty!
Hall Hours: (subject to change)
Friday, 11 August: 10:00 – 23:00
Saturday, 12 August: 8:00 – 23:00
Sunday, 13 August: 8:00 – 23:00
We know that everyone has a different vision for how they’d like to experience a Grand Prix event, and with that in mind, we’ve created the following different registration packages to help you maximize your enjoyment at Grand Prix Birmingham.
Grand Prix Birmingham will be held in the award-winning National Exhibition Center (NEC) in Birmingham. The NEC is a 10-minute walk from Birmingham International Railway Station, where direct services run all day.
Rates starting at 119 GBP / Night (VAT Included)
Not interested in the main event? Can’t make the start time? Want to play other formats? No problem! ChannelFireball is working on an amazing Side Events Schedule so you can play Magic all weekend! We’ll have that schedule for you as soon as it’s finished, so check back here for more information.
Every day, we’ll offer Double-Up events in Standard, Modern, and Legacy. These events will feature twice our normal prizes for a side event, with the entry fee set at LESS than twice the price! If that wasn’t enough value for you, we’re giving each player that enters a Double-Up Event an exclusive Grand Prix Promo!
We’ll have more information about Double-Up Events, including times, prizes, and pricing, very soon.
Grand Prix Birmingham will feature a group of ChannelFireball’s sponsored professional Magic players who will be on hand to enhance your GP experience! You can meet the pros at the following events on Friday:
Ever wanted to match wits with one of the best players in the world? Well, now you can! On Friday afternoon, our featured professional players will be accepting challengers. Bring a Constructed deck and get ready to battle – if you manage to win, you’ll receive an extra prize. No entry fee is required for Spellslinging; just get in the queue, and when your time comes, make sure to bring your A-game!
On Friday evening, we’ll be hosting the Foiled Again! Bounty Event, a four-round Sealed Deck Event where you can win Prize Tix and foil promo cards based on your record. Some of our pro players will be entering the event as well, so we’ve put a bounty out on them! If you get paired against one of our sponsored pros and you win the match, you’ll receive extra Prize Tix to commemorate your victory.
The exclusive VIP party is your best chance to mingle with our pro players as well as other Magic celebrities. Anyone who purchases the VIP Upgrade to their registration will be invited to this event, which will feature food, an amazing roster of personalities for our VIPs to meet and talk to, and a LIVE episode of Magic TV!
Check back soon for more information on the pro players and personalities attending GP Grand Prix Birmingham!
The Magic community has attracted many talented cosplayers, and ChannelFireball is proud to feature a roster of cosplayers at our Grand Prix events. We’ll have more information about our featured cosplayers soon!
We love Magic art – old and new – and we’ve invited some of Magic’s best artists to set up booths at Grand Prix Birmingham!

Whether you’re looking for some Power 9 for your collection or just a Power Conduit for your Commander deck, the vendors at Grand Prix Birmingham should be able to help you get what you’re looking for.
We believe you should be able to play the formats you enjoy and compete for prizes that interest you at our Grand Prix events, and with that in mind, we’re continuing to offer the Prize Wall at our 2017 Grand Prix events! Win Prize Tix in events and redeem them for items like booster packs, single cards, and uncut sheets.
We can’t make a full list of prizes available in advance of the event, so if you want to know if something specific will be offered, the best thing to do is to check out the Prize Wall on site. Here are some examples of items we’ve offered at previous events:

|Special Magic Products|
|San Diego Comic-Con Exclusives|
