IMPORTANT: Tournament Registration Onsite

Have you seen our incredible tournament schedule? You may register online for any scheduled event up to two hours prior to the start of the tournament. Registration for all tournaments will close exactly two hours prior to start time or when capacity is reached.  Registration for scheduled events must be done online. Onsite registration is only available for on-demand events.

Each tournament has a capacity limit, and once it’s full there will no longer be an opportunity to register and participate. We strongly recommend you register for tournaments as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.


All badges have shipped! If you received your badge in the mail, please be sure to activate it prior to coming to the event. The sooner you do that, the faster you will be able to enter MagicCon: Philadelphia. For instructions on how to activate your badge, click here.
